Understanding SELinux

I'm guessing that your filesystem is not labeled at all.

You can relabel your entire system by doing
       touch /.autorelabel
  and then rebooting
or by running 
      fixfiles relabel
and then rebooting

That should get the labeling done on the boot up.

You may want to go get a cup of coffee, it will
likely take a while (say, 10-20 minutes).

[The 'chcon' is failing because the SELinux label
for /var/log/boot.log look something like:
'system_u:object_r:var_log_t'.  You were only
providing the last component ...]
