i am trying to use gnome-boxes but it fails and i get the above mentioned error/warning from SELinux.
What do i need to do?

i have to run win 7, couldn't get VirtualBox either. it gives some dependency problems while i try to install it...

First, you can try set your system as permissive mode: $ sudo setenforce 0

then, try again, if its work, please, consider report this issue using "SELinux report browser".

Plus, Instead of VirtualBox that is held by third parties, recommend the one you are using Gnome Boxes and also the virt-manager.
