Description Jan Willies 2011-08-05 14:37:49 UTC
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/lircd (deleted) from 'read' accesses on the lnk_file usb1.

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

If you believe that lircd (deleted) should be allowed read access on the usb1 lnk_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 lircd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
