    need some advice on Installing Tripwire


    Dear all,

    I'm totally new to Linux and start to learn more about Linux.

    Here i need some advice on Installing Tripwire.

    I have uploaded tripwire-2.3.1-186.i586.rpm to my Suse Linux 9.3 machines. Then I have install the tripwire by using rpm -i tripwire-2.3.1-186.i586.rpm.(Everything look fine up to here)

    Then I start to customize the tripwire. After reading installation guide from a website(redhat website), there should be 3 files under /ect/tripwire/ (twcfg.txt, twpol.txt and twinstall.sh). But when i check on my machine, i only have twcfg.txt only??!!

    When i try to open up my twcfg.txt file. I can see
    POLFILE — Specifies the location of the policy file; /etc/tripwire/tw.pol is the default value.

    DBFILE — Specifies the location of the database file; /var/lib/tripwire/$(HOSTNAME).twd is the default value.

    REPORTFILE — Specifies the location of the report files. By default this value is set to /var/lib/tripwire/report/$(HOSTNAME)-$(DATE).twr.

    SITEKEYFILE — Specifies the location of the site key file; /etc/tripwire/site.key is the default value.

    LOCALKEYFILE — Specifies the location of the local key file; /etc/tripwire/$(HOSTNAME)-local.key is the default value.

    Option only and i suspect a lot of other are missing configurable variables.

    SUSE can install files under different locations than Red Hat. You might have to check for a readme file that installed with tripwire to find out where. Another option would be to use the find command to find the missing files.
