Problems compiling Tripwire
just getting loads of C++ synatx errors

I have to say this is one of the most bizzare pieces of open source sw I've ever tried to install.

I'm following the instructions in O'Reilly's book on building secure Linux servers and I'm trying to install it on RedHat 9 using all the GNU developer tools that came with the OS.

When I get to the point where I do make release (in the tripwire/src directory) I get reams of errors, mostly C++ syntax errors. Theres far too many to post here but a transcript of the output is at

At first I thought maybe the tarball I'd downloaded was corrupt but Ive re-fetched it and keep getting the same errors.

I dont know whether its just me but there seems to be very limited information on Tripwire available, so if anyone can help I'd be grateful. Im sure lots of peopl over time will Google onto this thread.

Have you considered one of the modern Tripwire alternatives? I don't think the GPL version of Tripwire has been maintained in years.

AFICK is enjoying some popularity right now and is wicked simple to install and run. Dag Wieers has an RPM available for RedHat 9 too.
