BSD process accounting has not been enabled when the operating system kernel was compiled. The kernel configuration parameter controlling this feature is CONFIG_BSD_PROCESS_ACCT.
Out of memory.
The calling process has no permission to enable process accounting.
The argument filename is not a regular file.
Error writing to the file filename.
