Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/bumblebeed from 'execute' accesses on the file /usr/bin/kmod.

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

If you believe that bumblebeed should be allowed execute access on the kmod file 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 bumblebeed /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Description of problem:
My system:
Fedora 20 x86-64
3.12.6-300.fc20.x86_64 Kernel
Intel Core i7-2670QM
NVIDIA Geforce 630M
I installed Fedora 20 and immediately updated all the packages using yum. My laptop uses the NVIDIA Optimus technology, which cannot be disabled via BIOS.

I've previously used Fedora 16 and followed this guide:
to get bumblebee working. The guide worked flawlessly and I was successfully able to do CUDA development on my laptop with no issues at all.

For my Fedora 20 installation, the dyxyng guide did not work. 
With that guide, I was able to start up the bumblebee daemon, but GNOME wouldn't load up when I reboot.

I then used this official guide:

Bumblebee almost seems to work using these instructions. 
The discrete graphics is disabled, and can be enabled to run CUDA applications. 
I've managed to install CUDA 5.5 and was able to compile all the samples, including those using the driver api (cuda.so in /usr/lib64/nvidia-bumblebee). 
However, when I run any kind of graphical application, such as glxgears or a CUDA nbody simulation (from the SDK), SELinux goes nuts and starts throwing up dozens of warnings, about 55 alerts per run.

CUDA applications that are not windowed work perfectly fine. 
I should also mention that when I used Fedora 16 with bumblebee, executing a CUDA application would result in a switch to the NVIDIA GPU, which was nice. 
In my current Fedora 20 installation, executing a CUDA application will not work without the optirun command. Without optirun being used, CUDA applications will simply fail because of a lack of GPU.

Description of problem:
I has 2 graphic cards and use bulmblebee to switch between the two cards.

This problem occurs when starting the S.O.
