Description Steve Grubb 2005-06-15 11:45:49 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050513 Fedora/1.0.4-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
The audit daemon is being killed by OOM killer during some tests. This should not occur. audit should be near the end of apps that get killed or it violates CAPP. If auditd does have to be killed, the audit failure mode should be consulted and the system panic'ed if needed. The audit daemon is currently programmed to try to set -17 into /proc/self/oom_adj per Chris Wright's suggestion. This may need to be backported or something else.
