Description Igor Gnatenko 2014-02-01 13:45:30 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/geoclue from 'read' accesses on the file .

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

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