:SELinux is preventing firewalld from using the 'sys_nice' capabilities.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that firewalld should have the sys_nice capability 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 firewalld /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 8 Rob K 2012-10-25 20:24:04 EDT
Went to add printer; printer config tool complained that there was no firewalld. yum installed firewalld, did a systemctl start firewalld, and this avc was generated.

Package: (null)
OS Release: Fedora release 17 (Beefy Miracle)
Comment 9 Rob K 2012-11-01 16:50:59 EDT
Really needs a F17 release to be honest. With the fun surrounding F18 I'm not keen to upgrade.
Comment 10 Miroslav Grepl 2012-11-02 04:54:23 EDT
Could you open a new bug for F17. Basically this is probably more ABRT issue and we could do some testing with a new bug. Thank you.
Comment 11 Fedora Update System 2012-12-20 11:09:51 EST
selinux-policy-3.11.1-36.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
