Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing geoclue from 'write' accesses on the sock_file socket.

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

If vous pensez que geoclue devrait être autorisé à accéder write sur socket sock_file par défaut.
Then vous devriez rapporter ceci en tant qu'anomalie.
Vous pouvez générer un module de stratégie local pour autoriser cet accès.
allow this access for now by executing:
# ausearch -c 'geoclue' --raw | audit2allow -M my-geoclue
# semodule -X 300 -i my-geoclue.pp
