Description Jiri Pirko 2009-01-09 08:23:05 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #452390 +++

Description of problem:
PATH records, as output by the kernel, contain a newline after the flags fields,
which is in the middle of the record.

EXECVE records contain a newline after every argument.

auditd seems to hide this, but they're there nevertheless. If you're not using
auditd, you need to work round them.

I've attached a patch which I think would fix them. However, I'm not able to
test the patch *at all* right now (even for compilation).

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