Dear folks,

The title has been reported as NOT A BUG, but it is annoying :(
without doing anything but logging in, the setroubleshooter kicks in and displays the message.  I have tried numerous times to report it, but it came back empty.  Then I click enough times and see that it is there, but it is NOT A BUG :(, I don't agree but can't do shite.

This problem was already reported to Bugzilla (see ''). Do you still want to create a new bug? NO

SELinux is preventing dmesg from 'read' accesses on the file /etc/

*****  Plugin restorecon (94.8 confidence) suggests  *************************

If you want to fix the label. 
/etc/ default label should be ld_so_cache_t.
Then you can run restorecon.
# /sbin/restorecon -v /etc/

*****  Plugin catchall_labels (5.21 confidence) suggests  ********************

If you want to allow dmesg to have read access on the file
Then you need to change the label on /etc/
# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE '/etc/'
where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: cpu_online_t, afs_cache_t, abrt_helper_exec_t, textrel_shlib_t, rpm_script_tmp_t, user_cron_spool_t, puppet_tmp_t, ld_so_cache_t, abrt_var_run_t, udev_var_run_t, sysctl_kernel_t, abrt_var_run_t, sysctl_crypto_t, locale_t, dmesg_t, proc_t, sysfs_t, dmesg_exec_t, abrt_t, lib_t, ld_so_t. 
Then execute: 
restorecon -v '/etc/'

*****  Plugin catchall (1.44 confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that dmesg 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 dmesg /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

What do I do, please advice.  I am getting annoyed, frustrated and I would hate to kill off selinux, because I actually like it, but the NOT A BUG does bother me.  I have had the past three or four days dealing with this, and now I am finally doing something about it :(

Thanks for listening.
