Description Fabio Valentini 2013-04-01 07:31:14 UTC
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/rm from 'remove_name' accesses on the directory man-db.lock.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************

If you believe that rm should be allowed remove_name access on the man-db.lock 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 rm /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
