Description Lee Whatley 2005-03-22 10:16:25 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.3) Gecko/20050104 Red Hat/1.4.3-3.0.7

Description of problem:
LAuS (Linux auditing subsystem) appears not to be included with RHEL v4.  The release notes do not mention anything about this package being removed or depreciated.  The only package I can find in v4 that even looks vaguely like it should have the functionality of LAuS is the "audit" package which contains only two files: auditd and auditctl.  It does not however contain any init scripts, aucat, augrep, or ANY documentation whatsoever.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL v4 and register with RHN
2. Run "up2date -u laus"


Actual Results:  The package is not found

Expected Results:  The package should have been downloaded from RHN and installed.  Better yet, up2date should have exited stating that the package was already installed because it should have been installed by default.

Additional info:

The LAuS package is not shipped with RHEL-4, and is replaced by audit .
I'm moving this bug to audit .
Comment 2 Steve Grubb 2005-03-23 16:57:48 EST
The audit package is still under active development. What was shipped is a
placeholder. Audit requires changes to the kernel to work properly. Both a new
kernel and a working audit will be released at some point in the future.

Hope this helps.

Well that doesn't really "help" me per se, but I appreciate the information.
Will the updated audit package be available on RHN as soon as it's ready, or
will it be deferred until RHEL v4 U1 comes out? Thanks!
Comment 4 Steve Grubb 2005-03-29 17:27:49 EST
I'm not sure when it will be available. The user space piece depends on having
some kernel code in place. The user space piece is available in rawhide (still
being developed, though), but does little good without the matching kernel.

I'll update this Bug Report when I have more information.

This problem report is a duplicate of 113381. An errata is being prepared for a
package release on the next update. Thanks for reporting it.

My organization recently purchased RHEL 4 WS 64Bit late last year and I can 
not find the LaUS RPM, should I expect to find a LAuS RPM and if so can anyone 
tell me what the name of the RPM is, is there a laus in it somewhere?
