Description Mark H Johnson 2001-08-09 15:53:00 UTC
Description of Problem:
Installed roswell (all packages). Tripwire was apparently included &
configured into the daily cron job. Email to root indicates it is not set
up properly (and sort of explained how...).

Did the first step...
No indication after that was complete that more was needed to be done.
Email to root the next day....

Did the second step...
  tripwire --init
Error seen as follows...
### Error: File could not be opened.
### Filename: /usr/sbin/tw.cfg
### No such file or directory
### Configuration file could not be read.
### Exiting...
OK, tried this...
  cp /etc/tripwire/tw.cfg /usr/sbin/tw.cfg
  tripwire --init
A gazillion messages ensue some time later [see attachment].

At this point, I'm wondering if I should turn it off, or if I really got it
installed OK. I guess I'll find out tomorrow.

Can the defaults be improved to either (or all)...
 [1] when added to cron.daily, require configuration (or at least tell me
it is needed during installation)
 [2] make the default configuration match what Red Hat 7.2 installs

How Reproducible:
Install "all packages" in roswell and follow the description above.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. [see above]

Actual Results:
See above & attachment.

Expected Results:
Tripwire be properly configured prior to addition to cron.daily.

We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.

Nalin, you commented something to me about tripwire a week ago or
so, was this the problem fixed?

Comment 4 Nalin Dahyabhai 2001-08-15 19:21:23 UTC
Oops, yes.  This should be fixed in 2.3.1-5 and later.  Marking as MODIFIED for
