Description Drew Ogle 2009-07-02 10:02:47 EDT
Description of problem:

Supplied Configration File does not monitor only "admin dot files for PERMS"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Exists in 0.13.1-7.fc11

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install aide.
2. Run aide -i
3. move the db in place.
4. run aide -C, note everything is fine.
5. change the mtime on a non dot file in /root.
6. run aide -C, note the mtime change is not reported.
Actual results:

mtime change on normal file in /root not reported.

Expected results:

mtine change on normal file in /root IS reported

Additional info:

The problem lies in the last rule in the configuration file.

it is curretnly

/root/.* PERMS

however since aide treats the lines a regular expressions, not globs, this matches all files in /root.

/root/\..* PERMS

Fixes the problem.

A new aide package has been built in rawhide to address this issue. Thanks for reporting it.
