HI,
for aide 0.10,
the ./configure step stops with this message:
configure:error: Must have a system that supports vsnprintf

I'm running a compiled 2.4.28 kernel . In the kernel
source tree i find (in /usr/src/linux/lib) vsprintf.c
which contains the definition of above mentioned vsnprintf
'
int vsnprintf (blah blah..)
'
the kernel compile produced a vsprintf.o , which i
guess was compiled into the kernel itself (it doesn't
show up under /lib/modules)

Specs
------
Vector Linux 4.3
(Vanilla) kernel 2.4.28, configured
athlon processor

bison,flex,mhash all are installed.

BTW Aide 0.10 has compiled successfully on Slackware
10.0 and Red Hat 9.

Thanks for any help...
John

    Ok - the lastest builds from CVS fixed it.

    Unpack the .tar.gz snapshot.

    cp -iprv aide-CVS-20050108/* aide-0.10/
    cd aide-0.10/
    ./configure
    ...and so on . Installed and working now.

    Thanks

    John

    vsprintf has not much to do with your kernel. It should be
    included in your C library, and the header files should be
    present (usually in /usr/include). If you cannot get it to
    work, please try the CVS snapshot which included a vsnprintf
    for systems that not have one. The URL is
    http://aide.sourceforge.net/aide-CVS-snapshot.tar.gz
