Description Erwan Legrand 2011-05-23 07:53:21 UTC
SELinux is preventing /bin/bash from 'read' accesses on the file pm-suspend.log.

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

If you believe that bash 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 dhclient-script /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
