Apr 12 11:27:42 localhost setroubleshoot: SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-logind from mounton access on the directory . For complete SELinux messages. run sealert -l 629d15df-67da-4a87-936c-2293ed01bfc1
Apr 12 11:27:42 localhost python: SELinux is preventing /usr/lib/systemd/systemd-logind from mounton access on the directory .
***** Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests **************************
If you believe that systemd-logind should be allowed mounton access on the directory 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 systemd-logind /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
