Description Buck Huppmann 2006-11-02 16:38:03 UTC
Description of problem:
audbin isn't compiled with -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64
so it fails with EFBIG if opening a file >= 2-GiB
(for concatenation. this may the case also for
auditd in the bugzilla 125726 that somebody else
reported and that was closed without mention of
what the resolution was)

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

How reproducible:
use audbin -C -a as your notify command in audit.conf and
generate enough audit data (excercise for the reader--or,
in our case, our users) to cause serious binmode log
churn (before logrotate cleans up)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. as described above
Actual results:
notify command fails

Expected results:
audbin appends to file without dying

Additional info:
see attached log file indicating problem

Looks like an easy fix.

Comment 6 Steve Grubb 2007-03-21 17:33:11 UTC
laus-0.1-76RHEL3 has been built with what I believe to be the fix.
