an SELinux denial.

Comment 1 Marco Grigull 2008-04-30 19:56:30 EDT
This should be collected regardless of the current assumed state of selinux.  

Notwithstanding, in rare cases syslogd can be prevented from creating *any* logs
and is caused by incorrect file SE labels in /var....

Comment 3 Marco Grigull 2008-04-30 21:51:07 EDT
The last 50 entries would provide enough information for 90% of the cases (based
on guestimate), it should not be necessary to capture all of the events.  If
there are many un-addressed events then we can request all of the
/var/log/audit/ logs manually.

As /etc/selinux /slash/ /etc/sysconfig/selinux provide false information, having
a part of the audit information available also helps to determine whether
selinux is having an impact on operations.
