:SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/kde4/ksysguardprocesslist_helper from 'write' accesses on the directory /.config.
:*****  Plugin catchall_labels (83.8 confidence) suggests  ********************
:If you want to allow ksysguardprocesslist_helper to have write access on the .config directory
:Then you need to change the label on /.config
:# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE '/.config'
:where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: root_t. 
:Then execute: 
:restorecon -v '/.config'
:*****  Plugin catchall (17.1 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that ksysguardprocesslist_helper should be allowed write access on the .config directory 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 ksysguardproces /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2012-07-15 14:14:12 EDT
This is KDE bug.

You can allow it for now using

# semanage fcontext -a -e /usr/share/config /.config
# restorecon -R -v /.config
