Description of problem:

setroubleshoot requested I file this bug, and here is what it's saying.

tell me what other information you need.  I'm seeing the count on these go up
about every five seconds or so, so it seems like it needs to be resolved.

    SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/dellWirelessCtl (hald_t) "read" to mem

Detailed Description
    SELinux denied access requested by /usr/bin/dellWirelessCtl. It is not
    expected that this access is required by /usr/bin/dellWirelessCtl and this
    access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also possible that the
    specific version or configuration of the application is causing it to
    require additional access.

Allowing Access
    Sometimes labeling problems can cause SELinux denials.  You could try to
    restore the default system file context for mem, restorecon -v mem If this
    does not work, there is currently no automatic way to allow this access.
    Instead,  you can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see
    http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385 Or you can disable
    SELinux protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not
    recommended. Please file a http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/enter_bug.cgi
    against this package.
