:SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/gvfs-gphoto2-volume-monitor from 'search' accesses on the directory /sys/kernel/config.
:*****  Plugin restorecon (99.5 confidence) suggests  *************************
:If you want to fix the label. 
:/sys/kernel/config default label should be sysfs_t.
:Then you can run restorecon.
:# /sbin/restorecon -v /sys/kernel/config
:*****  Plugin catchall (1.49 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that gvfs-gphoto2-volume-monitor should be allowed search 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 gvfs-gphoto2-vo /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Tim Any idea why xdm would be executing this?
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2012-10-11 04:51:12 EDT
I think it happens when I have my mobile phone connected when I log in.
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2012-10-11 14:04:04 EDT
Don't know why but then again don't really care.
