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

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2012-04-13 16:49:17 EDT
Ok we are going to label this as pulseaudit_home_t.

chcon -t pulseaudio_home_t ~/.esd_auth

Should fix the problem for now.
