I dunno about CentOS but on Fedora I just look at the message in the
log file (/var/log/messages IIRC) and it gives me a command to execute
to view more details.   When I do that, I get a window that comes up
with a whole bunch of info, including a command I can use to permit
this behavior from now on.  Sometimes executing that command does not
solve the issue, but usually there is a reasonably obvious way to
tweak the command.  If I can do it, anyone can.  Because as far as
selinux goes I know ZERO and am just fumbling around like a bull in a
china shop.  But I've been able to get that cruft out of my logs and
allow stuff to work (on my desktop here at work)
