Make sure you have the system fully updated - there have been many corrections to SELinux policy.

If you want to allow operations that SELinux would prohibit, issue the following command as root:

setenforce 0

To re-enable SELinux, use:

setenforce 1

Remember that by disabling SELinux, you are also disabling considerable security for the system.
