Description Denise Dumas 2008-11-04 10:58:15 EST
Description of problem:

libaudit.h change causes anaconda build to break, because anaconda has private "mini-daemon". The fix is to use struct audit_reply instead of struct auditd_reply_list

Per SteveG: 
libaudit.h defines the structure which is available to the public, but nothing in libaudit actually uses it. The only things are internal, so it was 
removed. From 1.6.5:

[sgrubb@centaur audit-1.6.5]$ grep -rl auditd_reply_list *

In 1.7.7, its now defined internally to auditd-event.h because we needed to 
expand its size and it appears to never have been intended for public use. 
Meaning, nothing in libaudit takes it as an argument or returns its type, so 
the anaconda people can just define the struct if they want and keep using 
Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2008-11-05 07:44:31 EST
This is fixed with this commit:
