User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
Only since latest 7.3 2.96-113 kernel update, on a fully up2date 7.3 i686 
system, tripwire has died with Segmentation Fault. I tried reinstall, upgrade 
etc etc but has same result:
tripwire --init               
Parsing policy file: /etc/tripwire/tw.pol
Generating the database...
*** Processing Unix File System ***
Software interrupt forced exit: Segmentation Fault

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
tripwire-2.3.1-10 plus 2.3.1-14/17/47

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. up2date -u your 7.3 system
2. tripwire --init OR              
3. tripwire --check            

Actual Results:  Segmentation Fault

Expected Results:  Performing integrity check...
then normal tripwire report.

Comment 2 Mark J. Cox 2003-12-12 04:06:29 EST
Have you tried this again on a newer distribution or with all errata
updates applied?
Comment 3 Keith Nelson 2003-12-13 08:40:33 EST
Hi Mark,
   Yes my RH7.3 system has all errata applied, including kernel. 
Unfortunatly the same problem. Currently installed: tripwire 2.3.1 10 
Build Date: Tue 26 Feb 2002 03:11:18 PM PST  however have tried later 
versions with same result.
Comment 4 Mark J. Cox 2004-05-11 04:25:42 EDT
Moving to RHEL2.1 which may be affected by this issue
Comment 5 Mark J. Cox 2004-06-18 13:53:31 EDT
We've just done a tripwire rebuild to fix a possible security flaw for
RHEL2.1: http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2004-244.html
Comment 6 Mark J. Cox 2004-07-14 10:14:55 EDT
Since RHEL7.3 is end of life and we issued this tripwire rebuild I'm
going to close the bug.  Please reopen it if necessary.
