I am on Red Hat Linux enterprise 5 (Dell 1950). Auditing is
start. This is the message in messages file
This looks like dns name resolution. Which auditd version are you
running? Did you enable name_format = fqdin auditd.conf? You could
temporarily change that setting to none orhostname. but maybe you should
file a bz for this, too.
Thank you for the reply. Current version is audit-1.5.5-7.el5. Man
pages for auditd.conf do not show name_format option. Anyway I tried
both options name_format = none and name_format = hostname and still
auditd fails to startup.
