Description Stefan Schulze Frielinghaus 2015-06-17 06:40:50 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing evince-thumbnai from read, write access on the chr_file /dev/tty2.

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

If you believe that evince-thumbnai should be allowed read write access on the tty2 chr_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 evince-thumbnai /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
