Description Pete Wyckoff 2008-05-29 09:08:20 EDT
rshd refuses all logins when audit is not enabled in the kernel
rsh-server-0.17-50.fc9.x86_64.  Build and boot a new kernel
without CONFIG_AUDIT, or disable it at boot.
Use rsh from another machine; with .rhosts access for instance.
Instead of a shell prompt, rshd sends back the string
"Error sending audit event." and rsh exits.
It looks like this happens due to the patch netkit-rsh-0.17-audit.patch
where calls to audit_log_acct_message() via log_audit() will
fail with -ECONNREFUSED.  Instead, rshd should notice this error
and continue with login in spite of the missing audit logging system.
Comment 1 Adam Tkac 2008-10-03 08:15:04 EDT
fixed in rawhide rsh-0.17-51.fc10. I'm not going to fix this problem in F9. If you think this issue should be fixed in F9 as well, please reopen.
