    True for kern.log but that does not make it right... About documentation: better not to start, I'll get banned for complaining. Never mind, that made me, for decades, learn to learn much quickly...

    see this. And, actually the access rights for /var/log/kern.log are restricted.

    Code:
    doug@s18:~/temp-k-git/linux$ grep CONFIG_SECURITY_DMESG_RESTRICT .con*
    .config:CONFIG_SECURITY_DMESG_RESTRICT=y
    ...
    .config-5.8.0-050800rc1-lowlatency:# CONFIG_SECURITY_DMESG_RESTRICT is not set
    .config-5.8.0-050800rc4-lowlatency:CONFIG_SECURITY_DMESG_RESTRICT=y
    .config-5.8.0-050800rc5-lowlatency:CONFIG_SECURITY_DMESG_RESTRICT=y
    .config-5.8-rc1-doug:# CONFIG_SECURITY_DMESG_RESTRICT is not set
    ...
    and:
    Code:
    doug@s18:~/temp-k-git/linux$ ls -l /var/log/kern.log
    -rw-r----- 1 syslog adm 1217129 Jul 15 15:20 /var/log/kern.log

    I did not have any relationship with that change...
    It's OK with me.

    Kernel 5.8-rc6 is available. There are a lot of kernel configuration file changes between -rc5 and -rc6.

    Re: Kernel 5.8 RC (Release Canidate) series

    Thanks for pointing out this problem. I agree with the Link provided posted by Matthew Ruffell, that these various logs should be admin protected. Actually I don't see how linux has survived this long with this vulnerability. If an intruder can mine my network data he is no longer blocked by closed ports. It may be a long shot, but possible. Also a good reason to make sure that gufw is active.

    PS
    This discussion is a diversion from the OP (
    Kernel 5.8 RC (Release Canidate) series) but without regard for that is a great discussion point.

    Re: Kernel 5.8 RC (Release Canidate) series

    In the page https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-pp...line/v5.8-rc7/
    I see:
    Test amd64/self-tests failed (rc=2, on=amd64, time=0:01:05, log=amd64/self-tests/log)
    ... self-tests failed... what does it mean? is the kernel unreliable?
    however I installed it and seems working fine.

    The Ubuntu mainline build process appears to also build a lot of, if not all of, the tools and tests and such. It appears to fail while attempting to link "tools/testing/selftests/bpf/tools/build/bpftool/disasm.o".

    This has nothing to do with the kernel itself, and it compiled fine.

    However notice it is bpfilter related, and my bpfilter error issues started with -rc5

    Without any proof, I think too much new code was added too deep into this -rc series. In my opinion, a violation of their own rules, but Linus himself did it, so who am I to comment. See the release notes for -rc5, in particular:

    Code:
    In addition to the outright fixes, there's a few cleanups that are
    just prep for 5.9. They all look good and simple too.
    Ya, no.
    Any follow-up information on your issue would be appreciated. Please have the courtesy to report back.

    It seems the default for iptables/nftables was changed. Couldn't run my VM's either. Do:

    Code:
    # update-alternatives --set iptables /usr/sbin/iptables-nft
    # update-alternatives --set ip6tables /usr/sbin/ip6tables-nft
    # update-alternatives --set arptables /usr/sbin/arptables-nft
    # update-alternatives --set ebtables /usr/sbin/ebtables-nft
    and re-boot fixed.
