Description of problem:With SELinux in enforcing mode, mysqld fails when "service mysqld start" is keyed in. There is no AVC log entry. When SElLinux is put in permissive mode, mysqld starts.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):5.1.73-3.el6_5
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install mysql, mysql-server
mysqld fails to start
mysqld should start
Can you, please, look into /var/log/messages and also /var/log/mysqld.log to see if you find some suspicious message there?

I don't see anything special in the log. Please, try to restore SELinux context of your datadir and log file, for default configuration:
#> restorecon -r /var/lib/mysql /var/log/mysqld.log /etc/my.cnf
It seems you've run the daemon with an empty datadir, is that correct? Do you use standard paths or you use some arbitrary path for your data files?
