  • I test many programs be like logkeys, Snoopy Logger, strace, auditctl, ... But "rootsh" is best of logger program. Thanks for perfect software.

  • how to do to run rootssh automatically from the beginning session logging ? I mean, not manual starting ----- The solution was to add in /etc/profile or .bash_profile # gf if [ -f /usr/bin/rootsh ] ; then /usr/bin/rootsh --no-logfile fi it's important the option --no-logfile to avoid any message to the users and loss her tracking. too, not to add this entries to .bashrc because it opens internal pts terminals in bucle
