/kernel/security/audit/audit-test: syscalls test fails on ia64
Last modified: 2012-06-20 12:17:02 EDT
Description of problem:
/kernel/security/audit/audit-test: syscalls fails
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happened on 1 machine thus far:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the aforementioned test via RHTS on ia64
From private email from jburke:
This is a "known" failure believed to be a test issue but not proven as of yet.
Jeff -- is there an open BZ on this?
No BZ, Have not opened one because I am not sure it is a RHEL issue. This seems
t be a test issue.
Why was this closed as INSUFFICENT DATA? If this is so the least that could be
done is to indicate what data would be helpful/useful?
Based on comment# 1, #2, if it could be a test case problem, I believe it would
affect All platforms besides IA64.., So moving it to generic..,
Btw, if it is not reproduceible on other platform, please share the test case,
then I can help debug the problem.

system calls test case
The audit-test syscalls test has 90 sub tests. I believe Linda's question was
which one of the syscalls tests failed?
It was the ptrace test case.
In order to figure out if this is a testcase, kernel or audit-libs user
space issue can you tell us when the last time this test passed? Both distro and
Sorry about the confusion as I assumed you saw the log which had the ptrace
testcase marked as failed so I thought you wanted something more like the actual
file that included the failed test case.
Please provide howto for reproducing the bug. eg. how to get the source code of
the failed test case , and how to run the test case...
I'm sorry I cannot figure that out by just knowing the test case name..
This passed on 2.6.9-67.EL kernel U6 Distro. Will have results on other kernels
The testcase can be checked out of cvs and run from the rhts interface. Please
You can download the test case from the internal RHTS repository.
If you are running this outside of RHTS you will need to install the RHTS
Follow steps 1-3.
Once you have the testcase and framework installed you can then cd
/mnt/tests/kernel/audit/audit-test-2088. Then do a make run. That will build
then run entire audit test suite. After that you can run individual testcases.
This test case seems to have been failing as early as 2.6.9-67.0.1.EL RHEL4-U6:
Updating PM score.
would Joshua please help me find package selinux-policy-devel or alternatives available in RHEL 4 that should be compatible with package rh-tests-kernel-security-audit-audit-test to reproduce bz443999. I'm trying to reproduce it on my local box, because there's network problem to access RHTS that can't get resolved in short time..
Since RHEL 4.8 External Beta has begun, and this bugzilla remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as exception or
