SELinux is preventing /bin/find "getattr" access on /var/lib/prelink/full.

Detailed Description:

[find has a permissive type (prelink_cron_system_t). This access was not

SELinux denied access requested by find. It is not expected that this access is
required by find and this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also
possible that the specific version or configuration of the application is
causing it to require additional access.

Allowing Access:

You can generate a local policy module to allow this access - see FAQ
(http://docs.fedoraproject.org/selinux-faq-fc5/#id2961385) Please file a bug
