Description Romain Coltel 2013-07-19 08:29:35 EDT
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/systemd-tmpfiles from setattr access on the directory tmp.

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

If you believe that systemd-tmpfiles 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 systemd-tmpfile /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp
