Possibly not the right forum, but:
Check for selinux errors in the kernel logfile
Check whether noexec is applied to the partition auditd resides on.

Hello....I've been lurking around trying to pick up tidbits for Linux. I actually
have RHEL 5---but need some help w/ a problem regarding the auditing. I used SECSCN to
modify my audit.rules, following their instructions.
My auditd will not start. When I look at the messages, it tells me that permissions are
denied. The permissions for my auditd.conf and audit.rules are rwx--r--r.
When I go to services and try to stop---stop is successful. But when I try to start,
My run levels are 1-5 on.
What else am I missing? The auditd.conf is exactly the same as my auditd.conf for my
CentOS 6.2 which is right next to the RHEL 5. It works fine.
I'd appreciate either some help in the form of troubleshooting--or a link to the
"right" forum for this question.
