I tend not to make my own packages, usually just installing debs on my Debian machine but I wanted Tripwire 2.3 not 1.2 so downloaded and followed the instructions. gmake on my box is GNU make but is only there as make so I did a ln to make and created gmake. Other thing was that the install.sh script insisted on looking in the true root directory (i.e. "/" not "/root" for the Tripwire binaries. I'm no shell script hacker so I couldn't see why so just put them there temporarily and everything was fine but I'd like to know what I was doing wrong. Using bash.
install.sh can be a bit cumbersome from time to time. Which part exactly failed? Having an output could actually help in fixing this. Also, I am guessing you meant you wanted 2.4, and not 2.3 which is currently what is packaged for Debian? http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=tripwire&searchon=names&suite=all§ion=all
