Description Sai Kiran Kanuri 2013-07-18 03:39:06 EDT
Description of problem:
i recently installed mpd. This could be caused by it.
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/pulseaudio from 'write' accesses on the file /var/lib/mpd/.config/pulse/e5aebeb05b1349daba80dab0d130828c-default-sink.

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

If you believe that pulseaudio should be allowed write access on the e5aebeb05b1349daba80dab0d130828c-default-sink 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 pulseaudio /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
