SElinux will not allow mailx or sendmail to operate on a file in the /var/log/rkhunter directory. There are a number of bad work arounds.

    Thanks for reporting. However if you grep the RKH tarball or CVS source for "mktemp" you will conclude the warning originates from a distribution-specific addition. that is something the existing replated ticket https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=660544 also does not address. In this case please ask Kevin Fenzi and see for instance his commit 65c5fc03f83332c3fd4886332962ba60773cf8e1 of 2010/12/08 via the scm-fedora-commits mailing list. This should be fixed downstream.

    Regards,
    unSpawn
