[suse-security] Tenshi, other console log monitors and mice
I've been looking into console based log monitors. I've used xlogmaster among others and they work really well, however, I would prefer a text based monitor that looks into multiple log files (eg messages/snort/http etc) and displays either the entire results or color coded like the shell does for file types of a particular string in the log that you specify. I played around with tenshi, which is written more for gentoo and solaris. Its nice, and has the ability to email you the results. While I could use that, I'd prefer on screen in the console to email because email isn't as secure as we'd like to believe. So what I'm asking is suggestions for these types of monitors. If some of you use tenshi on the SuSE platform, it'd be nice if you posted your init script as only gentoo and solaris ones come with the program.
Secondly, not to do with security but annoying much the same, I have a microsoft explorer mouse hooked up to a 4 port belkin KVM. Every time i switch out of the suse box and back the mouse goes berserk. On 9.0 you could just logout, and log back in and its fixed, however, on 9.1 you have to completely reboot in order to fix the problem. In the log file it reports all day that:
kernel: psmouse.c: Explorer Mouse at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 2 bytes away.
This logs when xdm isn't even started. I figured it was the KVM/cables but why does it work perfectly on reboot, but when virtual connection is severed does it puke?
