:SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/colord from 'create' accesses on the shared memory .
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that colord should be allowed create access on the  shm 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
