As far as I know, for this to work I would need to have auditd running,
isn't that the case? As I pointed in my initial post, auditd cannot start!

OK, I can force permissive mode, then start auditd, switch back to
enforced mode and then execute auditctl. Then, may be, I could find the
offending path/files causing the issues with the other programs I have
listed in my logs, but how do I deal with the auditd itself? auditctl
requires auditd to be running in order to show the paths, isn't that not
the case?
