:SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/chfn from 'getattr' accesses on the chr_file /dev/fb0.
:*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests  ***************************
:If you believe that chfn should be allowed getattr access on the fb0 chr_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 chfn /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
:# semodule -i mypol.pp
