:SELinux is preventing pkcon from 'ioctl' accesses on the fifo_file fifo_file.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that pkcon should be allowed ioctl access on the fifo_file fifo_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 pkcon /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
