Description Doug Hutcheson 2018-12-03 00:37:39 UTC
Description of problem:
This is one of a cascade of related reports presented each morning after I open my laptop.
SELinux is preventing certwatch from 'write' accesses on the directory /dev/hugepages.

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

If you believe that certwatch should be allowed write access on the hugepages directory 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 'certwatch' --raw | audit2allow -M my-certwatch
# semodule -X 300 -i my-certwatch.pp
