Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/gconf-defaults-mechanism from 'read' accesses on the file /etc/passwd.

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

If вы считаете, что gconf-defaults-mechanism следует разрешить доступ read к passwd file по умолчанию.
Then рекомендуется создать отчет об ошибке.
Чтобы разрешить доступ, можно создать локальный модуль политики.
чтобы разрешить доступ, выполните:
# grep gconf-defaults- /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
