:SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/python2.7 from 'getattr' accesses on the file /usr/lib/systemd/system/cups.service.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that python2.7 should be allowed getattr access on the cups.service 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 hpfax /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

According to the alert, this problem has already been fixed on your machine.
Comment 4 Tony 2012-10-06 16:37:32 EDT
Yes I added a local policy module for this one and then it got blocked for another reason. So I changed selinux to permissive and it chucked out 10 errors which I've reported as bugs. Question, can I have multiple local policy exceptions?
Comment 5 Miroslav Grepl 2012-10-08 04:58:40 EDT
Has been added to F17.
