So you installed something from the Internet and it doesn't work?

What happens? Just that one message? Does the program terminate? Who are you running the program as? Is SE enabled and operating on your system?

A quick glance at the docs, suggests they don't use the system logger, but log to var/log/lynis.log - anything in that?

It's a bug in that software.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
