Description Steve Tyler 2011-04-12 14:40:44 EDT
SELinux is preventing /bin/bash from 'execute' accesses on the file /bin/systemctl.

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

If you believe that bash should be allowed execute access on the systemctl 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 ck-system-stop /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
