If you install setroubleshoot (yum install setroubleshoot), it can
detect and report SELinux denials to you in a more friendly manner,
either via desktop alert or via email if it is a server.
Or you can look at the audit logs (/sbin/ausearch -i -m AVC) or system
logs (grep avc /var/log/messages) to see what denials are being
generated, and report those to this list.
audit2allow can help you work around denials, but you should post the
denials to get guidance on the proper fix. setroubleshoot can sometimes
help as well with pointing you in the right direction.
