:SELinux is preventing firewalld from 'getattr' accesses on the directory /var/lib/rpm.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If cree que de manera predeterminada, firewalld debería permitir acceso getattr sobre  rpm directory.     
:Then debería reportar esto como un error.
:Puede generar un módulo de política local para permitir este acceso.
:permita el acceso momentáneamente executando:
:# grep firewalld /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp

Does firewalld do anything with rpm?
Comment 4 Thomas Woerner 2012-10-10 08:51:11 EDT
No, besides providing rpm packages, there is no rpm use in firewalld.
Comment 5 Daniel Walsh 2012-10-10 09:08:04 EDT
Ernesto do you have a file system mounted at /var/lib/rpm?

Did this AVC happen during an update?
Comment 6 Ernesto 2012-10-10 11:26:58 EDT
Daniel, /var/lib/rpm is not a mountpoint (I hope that's what you are asking). It's inside my only EXT4 partition (/).
Yes, this was during a "yum update" from a terminal (I have uninstalled some time ago the graphical update notification thing, don't know if that's important).
Comment 7 Daniel Walsh 2012-10-10 14:49:42 EDT
Ok most likely this is a leak or something happening because the process was sitting in /var/lib/rpm when it got restarted.  I think I will just dontaudit this access in the future to prevent these random AVCs.
