	I've just recently deleted a bunch of its incomprehensible 
reportage from the machine I'm on at the moment; this has come in since 
(with my apologies for what c&p does to the formatting) :  

SummarySELinux is preventing semodule (semanage_t) "getattr" to / 
(fs_t).Detailed DescriptionSELinux denied access requested by semodule. 
It is not expected that this access is required by semodule and this 
access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also possible that the 
specific version or configuration of the application is causing it to 
require additional access.Allowing AccessYou can generate a local policy 
module to allow this access - see FAQ Or you can disable SELinux 
protection altogether. Disabling SELinux protection is not recommended. 
Please file a bug report against this package.Additional

	Quite commmonly, along with all the stuff that would take me 
years of study (years I don't have) to understand, I get either a 
recommendation to run some command ending in "reboot," which is very 
tiresome to do, and also takes inordinate time. Or else it asks for a bug 
report, which I am not competent to write, nor do I have time for it.

	I get this, on all three machines that live on my desk : 

[root localhost ~]# getenforce
[root localhost ~]#

	More details? I'm already drowning in details meaningless to me!
