Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

for minilogd. (A file containing the messages will be attached.)
Expected Results: No complaints.

avc denied lines from /var/log/messages during boot
The problem is the /dev/log has the wrong security context on it.
Are you running with /dev/ on tmpfs_t?
Do a restorecon /dev/log and the problem should go away.
Is this still happening with the current policy?
selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.12-1 is now OK: these lines are no longer
produced, in neither fc3t1 nor fc3t2pre (re0908.0). I see no
complaints when booting the latest up2date of these two systems.
