Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/pkla-check-authorization from 'getattr' accesses on the filesystem /.

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

If you believe that pkla-check-authorization should be allowed getattr access on the  filesystem 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 pkla-check-auth /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2013-06-19 16:00:53 EDT
If you execute 

chcon -t policykit_auth_exec_t /usr/bin/pkla-check-authorization 

Does it work fine?
