NAME
installwatch -- Track installation of software SYNOPSIS
installwatch [options] [command] DESCRIPTION
installwatch is a program that is used in order to track the changes made while installing local software (i.e. "make install"). It moni- tors the requested command, and produces a log which indicates all created and modified files. By default it outputs to syslog(3) using a priority of "LOG_USER | LOG_INFO". This may be overridden by the use of the -o flag. The log format is as follows: <return-value> <syscall-name> <argument> #<comment> Each field is delimited by a "^I" character if logging to syslog(3), or by a tab when logging to a file. ENVIRONMENT
INSTALLWATCH_BACKUP_PATH Set this variable to the location that you want installwatch to copy the original version of files which get modified. The direc- tory will be created if it does not exist, assuming that the parent is writable. OPTIONS
These program follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. -o --logfile Directs that output from the logged command be written to the filename specified. If the specified file already exists, it will be truncated. -r --root Sets the directory under which meta-info and translated files will be stored. -t --trans Toggle translation capabilities. -e --exclude Sets a comma separated neutral directory list, that won't be concerned by translation or backups. -d --dbgfile Specify a debug file. -v --dbglvl Sets the debug level to be used. -h --help Show help information. BUGS
installwatch does not work with programs which are statically linked with libc. Due to LD_PRELOAD limitations, it does not work with suid programs (this would probably introduce security problems, anyway). mknod(2) is not monitored. AUTHOR
