That's some heavy lifting. The cheat I tend to use is

grep sealert /var/log/messages

SELinux puts stuff in the log that includes a suggestion to run its
utility sealert with appropriate parameters. The output from that
command usually includes a fairly concrete hint about how to fix the
problem by running restorecon or relabelling. Instant expert!
