Problem description

Since the EAL3+ evaluation of SLES8+SP3 several new kernel updates
appeared. Some of these updates also fix bugs in the audit module. The
original certification-sles-eal3 RPM package includes an old version of
audit.o which will be installed during the execution of the sles-eal3
script and will overwrite newer modules installed. This update removes the
installation routine for audit.o.

Solution

Please install the updates provided at the location noted below.

Installation notes

This update is provided as an RPM package that can easily be installed onto a running system by using this command:
rpm -Uvh certification-sles-eal3.rpm
