I am trying to use a vanilla kernel from kernel.org version 2.6.12 and 2.6.16 with the audit daemon version 1.0.14. I am using ubuntu, so I have used alien to convert the redhat binary packages for an x86_64 architecture into *.deb files. I can install the deb files and the audit daemon runs, but it has trouble parsing the audit.rules file. The error I am getting is "Error sending insert watch request (Invalid Argument)."
Please help. I have a requirement to use these two kernel versions, and unfortunately can't use redhat, fedora, or their kernel binaries. I have recompiled my kernel with auditing turned on. I can look in the audit.log file and see events being written there when I start and stop the daemon, so I know the daemon works. I just need to know how to parse the log file correctly. Also when you bypass the log file and just use auditctl -w <file to watch>, the same error is returned.
Thanks in advance.
