Description of problem:
I receive the messages
Error sending rule list request (Invalid argument)
Error in line 5 of /etc/audit.rules
at boot time when starting auditd.
Stock FC4 installation with all updates applied on Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop.
I've made no changes to any of the files since installation of FC4. SELinux is set to "Warn".
Contents of /etc/audit.rules:
# This file contains the auditctl rules that are loaded
# whenever the audit daemon is started via the initscripts.
# First rule - delete all
# Feel free to add below this line. See auditctl man page
# Increase the buffers to survive stress events
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot the computer and watch messages after auditd starts.
Actual Results: Message appears.
Expected Results: No messages.
This appears to be a minor issue, but it suggests a low-quality release if the system delivers errors after an out-of-the-box installation. I have had no ill effects.
This only occurs when you have SE Linux disabled. Have you tried updating to
1.0.2-3? Just released yesterday.
When I execute auditctl -D I get:
File system watches not supported
Thanks. Closing based on positive feedback.
I haven't seen the new audit via yum yet. When I get it I will try this.
It's been available for 4 days. Mirrors should have sync'ed by now.
Hope this helps.
Fixed by applying audit-1.0.2-3-FC4.
