Description Tony Nelson 2007-03-01 21:17:28 UTC
Description of problem:
"service auditd status" only works for root, even though the function that
auditd uses to provide status works, so there isn't any permissions issue:

    . /etc/init.d/functions ; status auditd

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.non-root user
2.service auditd status
Actual results:
no output

Expected results:
auditd (pid  xxxx) is running...

Additional info:
OK, I know that there are services that don't provide status to a normal user,
but there are lots that do.  Anyway, I was looking at this one.

Comment 2 Steve Grubb 2007-03-03 13:23:59 UTC
This was fixed in audit-1.5 in rawhide. I had not planned to make audit 1.5
available to fc6. I might hand pick some fixes from it and make a new
audit-1.4.2 release.

Comment 3 Tony Nelson 2007-03-03 17:46:29 UTC
OK, thanks.  Leaving it unchanged in FC6 is fine with me!

Comment 4 Steve Grubb 2007-03-05 19:55:54 UTC
audit-1.4.2-3 has been built to address this problem. Its currently in testing
and will be pushed out wednesday if no bugs are discovered. Thanks for reporting
this issue.
