Description Brian Vaughan 2015-06-05 02:43:18 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing nm-dispatcher from using the 'sigchld' accesses on a process.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that nm-dispatcher should be allowed sigchld access on processes labeled NetworkManager_t by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep nm-dispatcher /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
