Description of problem:
 Errors appeared on first boot after  Fedora 32 beta workstation netinst netinstall in QEMU KVM virtual Machine guest on Fedora 31 Workstation Host
SELinux is preventing spice-vdagentd from using the 'sys_nice' capabilities.

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

If you believe that spice-vdagentd should have the sys_nice capability 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:
# ausearch -c 'spice-vdagentd' --raw | audit2allow -M my-spicevdagentd
# semodule -X 300 -i my-spicevdagentd.pp
