Description Jakub Jelinek 2005-06-10 11:43:40 UTC
When I run vlock or vlock -a on the console as a normal user, then type in
password, FC4 vlock complains:
$ vlock -a
The entire console display is now completely locked.
You will not be able to switch to another virtual console.
Please enter the password to unlock.
jakub's Password:
Error sending status request (Operation not permitted)

No error messages were printed by vlock in FC3.

Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2005-06-16 09:01:58 UTC
This warning is silenced in audit-libs >= 0.9.3.

The audit(-libs) should be probably updated in fc4 too.
