:SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/usermod from 'setattr' accesses on the file /home/jonathan/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that usermod should be allowed setattr access on the libflashplayer.so 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 usermod /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 1 Miroslav Grepl 2012-05-30 04:38:05 EDT
How does the command look which you execute?
Comment 2 Jonathan Gazeley 2012-05-30 05:00:36 EDT
As root user, I executed: usermod -g 500 jonathan

(Because I reinstalled my PC with Fedora 17 and my "jonathan" account came back with uid 1000. I re-numbered it to match my user account on other machines).
