It’s not Guix, it’s Fedora.  Fedora ships with SELinux enabled by
default, which means that all software needs to have a policy that
declares in what context it runs and what other contexts it can access.

The first thing to do is to install the guix-daemon.cil file as
explained in the manual.  That file is part of the Guix source

Then as you start guix-daemon you need to look at
/var/log/audit/audit.log (or similar) to see why SELinux blocked the
daemon from running.
