:SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/Xorg from 'execute' accesses on the file /sbin/modprobe.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that Xorg should be allowed execute access on the modprobe 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 Xorg /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
