Description bugzilla 2017-12-30 02:47:16 UTC
Description of problem:
This error occurs because mpd is attempting to access root/.config
SELinux is preventing mpd from 'getattr' accesses on the directory /root/.config.

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

If you believe that mpd should be allowed getattr access on the .config directory 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:
# ausearch -c 'mpd' --raw | audit2allow -M my-mpd
# semodule -X 300 -i my-mpd.pp

You're using wrong path for config files. Please use your home dir: HOME_DIR/.mpd/config. 

This will fix your issue.
