Description David Auer (2nd Account) 2022-01-04 14:37:20 UTC
Description of problem:
On each boot (ThinkPad L14)
SELinux is preventing ModemManager from read, write access on the chr_file wwan0at0.

*****  Plugin device (91.4 confidence) suggests   ****************************

If you want to allow ModemManager to have read write access on the wwan0at0 chr_file
Then you need to change the label on wwan0at0 to a type of a similar device.
# semanage fcontext -a -t SIMILAR_TYPE 'wwan0at0'
# restorecon -v 'wwan0at0'

*****  Plugin catchall (9.59 confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that ModemManager should be allowed read write access on the wwan0at0 chr_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:
# ausearch -c 'ModemManager' --raw | audit2allow -M my-ModemManager
# semodule -X 300 -i my-ModemManager.pp
