Description Luca Botti 2014-08-01 06:49:34 UTC
Description of problem:
Inserted brodadband USB key in my laptop. Correctly detected, everything is working, but I receive this SELinux advise
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/ModemManager from 'execute' accesses on the file .

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

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