SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 "search"
access on /home.

Detaillierte Beschreibung:

[polkit-gnome-au hat einen toleranten Typ (policykit_auth_t). Dieser Zugriff
wurde nicht verweigert.]

SELinux denied access requested by polkit-gnome-au. It is not expected that this
access is required by polkit-gnome-au 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.

Zugriff erlauben:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug

You can add these rules for now using

# grep avc /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
