Description Martin Kho 2011-05-15 07:16:30 UTC
SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/colord from 'getattr' accesses on the blk_file /dev/dm-0.

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

If you believe that colord should be allowed getattr access on the dm-0 blk_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 colord /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
