Description Ted Rule 2007-02-02 15:57:05 UTC
Description of problem:

The combination of strict enforcing SELinux policy and this line in 

exit(0) unless -d '/selinux';

means that no log summary is produced for the "audit" service by

Because this line in /usr/share/logwatch/default.conf/services/audit.conf

*OnlyService = (kernel:)?\s*audit.*

filters out any non-audit log messages from the "pipe" into the service script,
it is effectively passed a null-length pipe if SELinux is not running anyway.
Hence the simplest fix is simply to remove the test for visibility of /selinux
in the logwatch service script, and avoid any further change to SELinux policy.

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

logwatch-7.3-7.fc6 and selinux-policy-strict-2.4.6-27.fc6
