Description ricardo 2013-07-18 21:51:10 EDT
Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/tmpwatch from 'setattr' accesses on the directory tmp.

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

If you believe that tmpwatch should be allowed setattr access on the tmp 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
