Description Gerd Hoffmann 2013-08-23 02:50:44 EDT
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/cat from 'read' accesses on the file environ.

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

If you believe that cat should be allowed read access on the environ file 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:
# grep cat /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
