we need far more information than that to be of assistance!

An 'AVC denial' is just telling you that SELinux has prevented something
from happening on your system. We'd need the actual denial message to
see what it's complaining about - click on the "Sheriff's badge" in your
system tray and tell us what it says.

Then we may know what is wrong!
