Trouble-Maker


hi

I was reading about a linux program called Trouble-Maker which basically is a good to for Troubleshooting

http://trouble-maker.sourceforge.net/

but I see it stops supporting new linux versions like Red hat o CentOS 5.x


any one knows about a similar tool o if this one was renamed or something?


thanks a lot

Well, a quick look eg http://trouble-maker.sourceforge.net/dev-engine.html shows it's all written in Perl, so it'll probably run on current versions, as Perl is largely backward compatible. Also, since you've got the src, all you have to do is brush up on your Perl to update/customize it.

WTF?
Why would you want to make trouble on your linux system.

I agree, the name is a little misleading...
