You are probably affected by a bug. You would have to provide more information.

Check the details of the problem using the Automatic Bug Reporting Tool (ABRT). There you can also report the problem to redhat's bugzilla. I recommend doing so because it helps the developers to identify the cause of the crash and it helps you to deal /fix the bug / stay updated.

Google returns quite a few similar bugs if you search for your error message: So, it's likely someone reported it. Check out on yours...

If you want, you don't have to wait for it to happen again. Your error reports are saved, and you can take a look at them by using the Automatic Bug Reporting Tool (ABRT) which you can find installed by default in Gnome. You can find it by typing abrt in Gnome's search field. Since you problem is related to SELInux you can also find details using the SELinux Alert Browser (find it by typing selinux in Gnomes search field).

OK -sorry fo rthe wait bu tI was away - here is the full Details ---

SELinux is preventing abrt-hook-ccpp from getattr access on the file file.

Plugin catchall_labels (83.8 confidence) suggests ******

If you want to allow abrt-hook-ccpp to have getattr access on the file file Then you need to change the label on file Do

semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE 'file'

where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: NetworkManager_log_t, NetworkManager_tmp_t, abrt_dump_oops_exec_t, abrt_etc_t, abrt_helper_exec_t, abrt_tmp_t, abrt_upload_watch_tmp_t, abrt_var_cache_t, abrt_var_lib_t
