    Roger Salisbury - 2006-06-11

    Hi to all the volanteers doing their good work!

    I have tried to get trouble-maker working on RHEL4, Fedora Core 2, Fedora Core 5.
    Fedora Core 2 is offically supported but all exhibit the same error messages.
    These can be found below for a selction of just some of them.
    I have followed the install details as best I can.
    Tried both versions.

    Yes It almost works,... "network-off" actually turns networking off - but still doesn't execute error free.

    Looking forward to any tips:

    Thanks & cheers
    Roger

      There is a slightly modified engine out there now.
      Please download release 0.03 and try it out.

      If you have errors, please edit trouble-maker.pl and test with different debug modes:

      my %debug = (
        parse_modules => 0,
        choose_modules => 0,
        backup => 0,
        run => 0,
      );

      For example, if you are having a problem with module selection, change the "choose_modules" key to '1', and re-run the app.  This will help me trace what the exact problem is.

      Please keep in mind that, at present, I have not ported the trouble modules to the RHEL4/FC3+ series.

      With luck, I can start that process soon.
