Try this:

$ audit2allow --help
audit2allow [-d] [-v] [-l] [-i <inputfile> ] [-o <outputfile>]
        -d      read input from output of /bin/dmesg
        -v      verbose output
        -l      read input only after last "load_policy"
        -i      read input from <inputfile>
        -o      append output to <outputfile>

$ audit2allow -v -1 /var/log/messages

This will not only tell you what SELinux is complaining about, it will
give you the basic information needed to configure your local policy file


To implement policy changes, edit the local.te file as indicated by
audit2allow and rebuild your SELinux policy files with:

$ /etc/selinux/targeted/src/policy/make reload

Be advised however that audit2allow may suggest policy alterations that
are broader than strictly necessary.  It is probably worth your while to
post your contemplated policy changes here and get some informed opinions
about whether they actually should be more restrictive.

To do any of this you need to first install the selinux-policy-targeted rpm.
