Description Buck Huppmann 2006-11-02 11:38:03 EST
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):
laus-0.1-70RHEL3

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
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
notify command fails

Expected results:
audbin appends to file without dying

Looks like an easy fix.
Comment 6 Steve Grubb 2007-03-21 13:33:11 EDT
laus-0.1-76RHEL3 has been built with what I believe to be the fix.
