RE: EXTERNAL: Re: Issues with auditd kernel panic and nfs mounts



Yes, I also have watch rules for files in /etc and those do not seem to be a problem.

Such as:

-w /etc/sudoers -p rwxa -k sro

There was an issue with watch rules. Eric had a patch back in April that I thought was supposed to land upstream for 3.5 but I don't see it on git.kernel.org.

I'm not sure if this would be affecting you since I think the -F dir= are tree rules rather than watch rules. Do you have any actual watch rules installed?
