RE: explanation/translation of auditd exit codes



Thanks to everybody for their help.

Eric, 

That file, /usr/include/asm-generic/errno-base.h, was exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

ausearch -i at least translates them into their posix names....

checking out /usr/include/asm-generic/errno-base.h shows:

#define EEXIST          17      /* File exists */

But if you use -i it will do it correctly across arches, etc...
