Running as root should make no difference as far as SELinux is
concerned.

If you suspect that SELinux is preventing your application from running,
try running, as root:

# setenforce 0

Then, as your regular user, try exactly the same way of running the
application that you used previously. If it now runs, SELinux is the
issue and that can be investigated further. If not, SELinux is not the
problem and you can turn it back on:

# setenforce 1

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SELinux
is a good starting point.
