Description Valent Turkovic 2008-01-22 12:42:13 UTC
Description of problem:
    SELinux is preventing the /usr/sbin/semodule from using potentially
    mislabeled files (<Unknown>).

Detailed Description
    SELinux has denied /usr/sbin/semodule access to potentially mislabeled
    file(s) (<Unknown>).  This means that SELinux will not allow
    /usr/sbin/semodule to use these files.  It is common for users to edit files
    in their home directory or tmp directories and then move (mv) them to system
    directories.  The problem is that the files end up with the wrong file
    context which confined applications are not allowed to access.

Allowing Access
    If you want /usr/sbin/semodule to access this files, you need to relabel
    them using restorecon -v <Unknown>.  You might want to relabel the entire
    directory using restorecon -R -v <Unknown>.
