Description Antonio A. Olivares 2010-11-16 01:58:55 UTC
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/xauth from unlink access on the file .Xauthority.

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

If you want to allow xauth to have unlink access on the .Xauthority 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:
# grep /usr/bin/xauth /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Ok, it really looks your home directory is mislabeled.

restorecon -R -v ~/
