Summary0015016: SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/mysqld from using the 'sys_nice' capabilities.
DescriptionDescription of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/mysqld from using the 'sys_nice' capabilities.

***** Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests **************************

If you believe that mysqld should have the sys_nice capability by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# ausearch -c 'mysqld' --raw | audit2allow -M my-mysqld
# semodule -i my-mysqld.pp

Another user experienced a similar problem:

I did the following:
1. I downloaded md5sum mysql80-community-release-el7-1.noarch.rpm from the mysql download site
2. md5sum mysql80-community-release-el7-1.noarch.rpm checked out
3. yum localinstall mysql80-community-release-el7-1.noarch.rpm
4. yum repolist enabled | grep mysql returned a list of repos
5. yum install mysql-community-server
6. service mysqld start;

Step 6. - the last step caused the problem
