SELinux is preventing the dbus-daemon from using potentially mislabeled files

Detailed Description:

SELinux has denied dbus-daemon access to potentially mislabeled file(s) (root).
This means that SELinux will not allow dbus-daemon to use these files. It is
common for users to edit files in their home directory or tmp directories and
then move (mv) them to system directories. The problem is that the files end up
with the wrong file context which confined applications are not allowed to

Allowing Access:

If you want dbus-daemon to access this files, you need to relabel them using
restorecon -v 'root'. You might want to relabel the entire directory using
restorecon -R -v 'root'.
