Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/ln from 'create' accesses on the lnk_file kernel-3.9.6-200.fc18.x86_64-x86_64.

*****  Plugin catchall_labels (83.8 confidence) suggests  ********************

If you want to allow ln to have create access on the kernel-3.9.6-200.fc18.x86_64-x86_64 lnk_file
Then you need to change the label on kernel-3.9.6-200.fc18.x86_64-x86_64
# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE 'kernel-3.9.6-200.fc18.x86_64-x86_64'
where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: apcupsd_lock_t, apmd_lock_t, automount_lock_t, bluetooth_lock_t, condor_var_lock_t, cupsd_lock_t, denyhosts_var_lock_t, device_t, dirsrv_var_lock_t, dirsrvadmin_lock_t, drbd_lock_t, etc_aliases_t, etc_t, fenced_lock_t, fonts_t, ftpd_lock_t, getty_lock_t, httpd_lock_t, initrc_state_t, initrc_tmp_t, ipsec_mgmt_lock_t, iscsi_lock_t, krb5kdc_lock_t, likewise_pstore_lock_t, local_login_lock_t, locale_t, lockdev_lock_t, logrotate_lock_t, logwatch_lock_t, lvm_lock_t, mailman_lock_t, mandb_lock_t, mrtg_lock_t, pkcsslotd_lock_t, pki_ra_lock_t, pki_tomcat_lock_t, pki_tps_lock_t, postgresql_db_t, postgresql_lock_t, pppd_lock_t, qpidd_var_run_t, rhsmcertd_lock_t, ricci_modstorage_lock_t, semanage_read_lock_t, semanage_trans_lock_t, shorewall_lock_t, slapd_lock_t, svc_svc_t, system_cronjob_lock_t, tmpfs_t, uucpd_lock_t, var_lock_t, var_run_t, virt_cache_t, virt_lock_t, xdm_lock_t. 
Then execute: 
restorecon -v 'kernel-3.9.6-200.fc18.x86_64-x86_64'

*****  Plugin catchall (17.1 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that ln should be allowed create access on the kernel-3.9.6-200.fc18.x86_64-x86_64 lnk_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 ln /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
