Description Hicham HAOUARI 2011-06-28 08:29:45 UTC
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/pppd from 'search' accesses on the directory /var/lock.

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

If you believe that pppd should be allowed search access on the lock 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:
# grep pppd /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
