:SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/tmpwatch from 'search' accesses on the directory kdecache-root.
:*****  Plugin catchall_labels (83.8 confidence) suggests  ********************
:If you want to allow tmpwatch to have search access on the kdecache-root directory
:Then you need to change the label on kdecache-root
:# semanage fcontext -a -t FILE_TYPE 'kdecache-root'
:where FILE_TYPE is one of the following: tmp_t, var_t, amavis_spool_t, user_home_dir_t, textrel_shlib_t, filesystem_type, device_t, locale_t, etc_t, file_t, proc_t, man_t, rpm_script_tmp_t, tmp_t, usr_t, var_t, winbind_var_run_t, security_t, etc_t, cert_t, default_t, tmpfile, rpm_log_t, var_t, var_log_t, cfengine_var_lib_t, var_run_t, sssd_public_t, abrt_var_run_t, var_run_t, sandbox_file_t, abrt_var_run_t, likewise_var_lib_t, sysctl_crypto_t, kismet_log_t, rpm_var_cache_t, krb5_conf_t, var_spool_t, httpd_cache_t, var_log_t, var_lib_t, user_home_type, cfengine_var_lib_t, setrans_var_run_t, file_type, httpd_sys_rw_content_t, var_lib_t, var_run_t, device_t, print_spool_t, samba_var_t, sysctl_t, etc_t, abrt_t, bin_t, samba_etc_t, proc_t, home_root_t, avahi_var_run_t, lib_t, mnt_t, sysfs_t, nscd_var_run_t, nslcd_var_run_t, tmpreaper_t, root_t, smbd_var_run_t, sssd_var_lib_t, tmp_t, usr_t, var_t, net_conf_t, cpu_online_t, krb5_host_rcache_t, var_t, var_t, var_run_t, var_run_t, nscd_var_run_t, pcscd_var_run_t. 
:Then execute: 
:restorecon -v 'kdecache-root'
:*****  Plugin catchall (17.1 confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that tmpwatch should be allowed search access on the kdecache-root 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 tmpwatch /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
