:SELinux is preventing /sbin/killall5 from 'getattr' accesses on the file /home/ahmed/.dropbox-dist/dropbox.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that killall5 should be allowed getattr access on the dropbox 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 pidof /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
