Description Flóki Pálsson 2010-12-05 23:20:30 UTC
SELinux is preventing plymouthd from 'create' accesses on the file force-display-on-active-vt.

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

If you believe that plymouthd should be allowed create access on the force-display-on-active-vt 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 plymouthd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
