First install and create a db
aptitude install aide aideinit
First problem here, I got a memory leak. Removing some hash functions helped.
#reduced checksums #Checksums = md5+sha1+rmd160+haval+gost+crc32+tiger+whirlpool Checksums = tiger+whirlpool
Second problem here
I receive a funny: Couldn't open file /tmp/empty/aide.db for reading
which I bypass with
mkdir /tmp/empty ln -s /var/lib/aide/aide.db /tmp/empty/aide.db
(problem is, tmp is going to be reset at startup, I think)
Still have to test if AIDE is effective detecting changes!
