Description Matěj Cepl 2010-12-17 17:00:56 UTC
SELinux is preventing /sbin/consoletype from 'read' accesses on the file /var/log/pm-suspend.log.

*****  Plugin restorecon (99.5 confidence) suggests  *************************

If you want to fix the label. 
/var/log/pm-suspend.log default label should be devicekit_var_log_t.
Then you can run restorecon.
# /sbin/restorecon -v /var/log/pm-suspend.log

*****  Plugin catchall (1.49 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that consoletype should be allowed read access on the pm-suspend.log 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 /sbin/consoletype /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
