:SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/perl from 'read' accesses on the file /etc/group.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that perl should be allowed read access on the group 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 editparams.cgi /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Comment 2 Gideon Mayhak 2012-07-24 10:32:22 EDT
This one is actually unrelated to Munin.  Sorry, I know I submitted them all rapid fire :-).  This one is for Bugzilla, and it is triggered when I go to save pages like Parameters under Administration.  I click Save Changes, and I get the following message:

There is no such group: apache. Check your $webservergroup setting in /etc/bugzilla/localconfig.


 at Bugzilla/Install/Filesystem.pm line 777
	Bugzilla::Install::Filesystem::_check_web_server_group(...) called at Bugzilla/Install/Filesystem.pm line 697
	Bugzilla::Install::Filesystem::_get_owner_and_group(...) called at Bugzilla/Install/Filesystem.pm line 649
	Bugzilla::Install::Filesystem::fix_file_permissions(...) called at Bugzilla/Config.pm line 304
	Bugzilla::Config::write_params(...) called at /usr/share/bugzilla/editparams.cgi line 154

This denial is then logged, so it seems to be getting denied access to /etc/passwd and /etc/group.

I should also note that for all of these, I tried creating a .pp using audit2allow -M and loading it with semodule -i, but it didn't seem to have any impact.  Everything indicated that the module was loaded properly, but it didn't actually allow the access afterward.
