    I prefer to harden the kernel in some way. In the past following these instructions was an easy and effective approach:

    1. Type: wget ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/PLD/current/dists/ra/PLD/i686/PLD/RPMS/lcap-0.0.6-3.i686.rpm
    2. Type: rpm -Uvh lcap-0.0.6-3.i686.rpm
    3. Type: lcap CAP_SYS_PTRACE

    However, lcap-0.0.6-3.i686.rpm is no where to be found.

    What I have found is the apparently newer RPMs listed here:
    http://www.rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=lcap&submit=Search+...

    .. but I have no idea which one will work for our server.

    Here's our server specifics:
    REDHAT Enterprise 5.7 i686
    2.6.18-274.el5PAE #1 SMP Fri Jul 8 17:59:09 EDT 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    I do have the old lcap-0.0.6-3.i686.rpm stowed away on another server, but I'm really not sure which approach to take in this case.

    Anyone?

    Great thanks.

    Hi, perhaps you could help again with this.

    This time we have put on a new server that is running 64-bit

    Here's the result of running uname -mrs
    Linux 2.6.32-220.13.1.el6.x86_64 x86_64

    I found what I believe to be the correct RPM here:
    195.220.108.108/linux/dag/redhat/el6/en/x86_64/rpmforge/RPMS/lcap-0.0.6-6.2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

    After downloading the rpm I install it with this:
    rpm -Uvh lcap-0.0.6-6.2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

    I get what appears to be the normal output.

    But then, upon running this:
    lcap CAP_SYS_PTRACE

    I get this:
    /proc/sys/kernel/cap-bound: No such file or directory

    And sure enough, there is no cap-bound like there is on all the other cPanel servers where I have made this installation.

    Any ideas? Thanks much.

    Ooops, I should probably make a new thread about this, since it is a different issue. Thanks.
