Horrible situation with Tripwire
|Reported by:||Arthur Demchenkov||Owned by:|
Hello, happy (B)LFS users! :-)
As far as I'm installing a plenty of third-party packages on my LFS-6.2 box, I've got a need to control my filesystem integrity for security reasons.
So I've installed tripwire package. There are bunch of fixes corresponding part of the book should be applied to:
1) Instructions in the book are not correct.
tripwire --update -twrfile \
SHOULD BE CHANGED TO:
tripwire --update --twrfile \
2) http://home.iprimus.com.au/glombowski/blfs/twpol-lfs.txt IS DAMN OUT OF DATE I could manage to update it. Or even better to make our own twpol-blfs.txt for example.
3) What do I come to following the BLFS-instructions? tripwire --update --twrfile bla-bla-bla.twr ... Entering vim with report. Ok I want to approve all changes made to filesystem -> I just type :x<Enter> And what I get next? This error message appears:
No protocol specified Interactive Update failed. ### Error: Report file could not be parsed. Report may be corrupt. ### Exiting...
And of course the tripwire integrity database is not updated.
I've reinstalled tripwire, checked my config files, but nothing helped. Any ideas? Ah, my tripwire-configuration is in attachment for your use. Maybe there is another opensource integrity-checking tool we should use in BLFS?
