Description Ed Greshko 2013-04-07 00:42:10 UTC
Description of problem:
The failure occured during the verify phase of doing

yum groupinstall "Xfce Desktop"
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/systemctl from 'read' accesses on the file utmp.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that systemctl should be allowed read access on the utmp 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 runlevel /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
