BLFS Tripwire 2.4.1.2 - twadmin Command not found


I have now made it to BLFS, after installing Tripwire-2.4.1.2 and trying to begin the config with the code.

Code:
twadmin --create-polfile --site-keyfile /etc/tripwire/site.key \
    /etc/tripwire/twpol.txt &&
tripwire --init
I get...

bash: twadmin: command not found

Any ideas why twadmin is not found?

Hi,

If twadmin cannot be found it looks like it wasn't installed correctly. Did you take care of the Warning that's mentioned in the Tripwire chapter (The MTA related one)?

Check the /usr/sbin directory, twadmin should be in that directory.

Hope this helps.

Re:

Yes I did, I check in /usr/sbin and it is there. To get it to work right I had to use...
Code:
./twadmin --create-polfile --site-keyfile /etc/tripwire/site.key \
    /etc/tripwire/twpol.txt &&
./tripwire --init
The ./ made it work

Hi,

You did make it work, but /usr/sbin should be part of your root account PATH setting! Don't continue untill you get this fixed. Check your PATH setting and revisit the "The Bash Shell Startup Files" section (lots of PATH related stuff is done there).

For root, these should be there (a bare minimum):

/sbin
/usr/sbin
/bin
/usr/bin

Maybe you want/need to add /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/sbin.

Some of the packages you (might) install from the BLFS book do add to the PATH variable. If so, the chapter will tell you how to do so.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, In a different dir I typed in twadmin just to see if it worked and it does. No command not found error.
