Description Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2010-04-22 13:19:35 UTC
Since I updated zlib to 1.2.4, aide has been failing to update it's database and send my daily report. I've been puzzled by the problem for a while until I remembered that zlib-1.2.4 upgrade caused some problems in other packages as well and sure enough, when I disabled gzip_output in my aide configuration and gunzip the existing files, it all started working again.

The output of aide was looking like this:

Gilles, you should try zlib-1.2.5 instead,  1.2.4 release was so bad it won't go stable (and is now overshadowed by 1.2.5 KEYWORDS).
Comment 2 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2010-04-22 14:10:10 UTC
will do ASAP.
Comment 3 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2010-04-23 14:19:59 UTC
Same problem with zlib-1.2.5:

# aide -V4 --update -c /etc/aide/aide.conf 
Couldn't open file /var/lib/aide/ for writing

Fixed in cvs.
Comment 5 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2010-09-29 16:38:32 UTC
confirming this works with sys-libs/zlib-1.2.5-r2 and app-forensics/aide-0.14.2. Thanks all.
