Description Paolo Villani 2013-07-03 04:45:17 EDT
Description of problem:
after installing vmware desktop 8 tools
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/ldconfig from 'write' accesses on the directory etc.

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

If you believe that ldconfig should be allowed write access on the etc 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 ldconfig /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
