Update on Artful regression analysis from comment #22. 1. Same as in comment #22. Hopefully these can be ignored as they were for xenial.
2. Same as in comment #22. tests passed in different runs as stated above. When the failures occurred, was because of time outs while waiting for something. Failures appear to be intermittent and not related to change made here. 3. gnocchi - appear to be a testcase usage message from python. Not related to change made in this bug. 4. libdata-uuid-libuuid-perl (s390x) Julian did a test here using hello and prior version of util-linux and they both failed with same error. So this error is not related to this bug change. Something else changed perhaps in testcase or test environment. 5. tracker passes on a re-run 6. nplan passes on a re-run Conclusion: Hopefully above explanations result in regressions having been resolved so util-linux in artful can be promoted. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to util-linux in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1722313 Title: Enable auditing in util-linux. Status in util-linux package in Ubuntu: Fix Released Status in util-linux source package in Xenial: Fix Committed Status in util-linux source package in Zesty: Fix Committed Status in util-linux source package in Artful: Fix Committed Status in util-linux package in Debian: New Bug description: [IMPACT] Enable auditing in util-linux. The config option, --with-audit enables auditing. Only the hwclock and the login commands within util-linux package have source code for auditing. But that source code is disabled by default and requires the config option, --with-audit to enable it. The login command is not built nor shipped in util-linux. Ubuntu uses the login command from shadow instead. Thus, only hwclock command would be affected by this change. The change would enable the hwclock command to generate an audit log message to /var/log/audit/audit.log whenever it changes the hardware clock. This message will only get logged to /var/log/audit/audit.log, if auditd daemon is running. Otherwise, if the auditd is not running, like most log messages, it will get logged to /var/log/kern.log and|or /var/log/syslog if these services are enabled. That the hwclock generates an audit message when hardware clock is changed is a requirement for Common Criteria EAL2 certification for Xenial. [TEST] This has been tested on both P8 and amd64 architectures. With the patch all the Common Criteria testcases pass for hwclock. Before this patch, the functional part of the testcase passed, but the check for the triggered audit records would fail. Attached the Common Criteria testcase below. Also, the util-linux package has testcases that get run during the build. All of these pass. Pointer to build log below. [REGRESSION POTENTIAL] The regression potential for this should be small. This change does not take away from any current functionality. It just adds the ability to generate an audit entry when system hardware clock is altered.
