:SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/python2.7 from 'read' accesses on the file /usr/include/python2.7/pyconfig-64.h.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that python2.7 should be allowed read access on the pyconfig-64.h 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 yum /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

How did you setup sudo to get this error?

Comment 2 Niranjan Mallapadi Raghavender 2012-05-16 04:26:57 UTC
On visudo i have setup up like below:

## Installation and management of software
Cmnd_Alias SOFTWARE = /bin/rpm, /usr/bin/up2date, /usr/bin/yum


Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2012-05-18 18:08:46 UTC
