Wanted: software configuration change tracker

Hello folks,

I would like to find a software tool that can track
changes to the linux installation on my PC.

Something like this tool for Windows:

I want to be able to identify every change to
the filesystem resulting from an application

In simplest form, I can imagine a script that looks at
all the files last modified dates and returns all files
modified since a specific time I provide.
I could build what I need on top of that.

The -mtime parameter of the 'find' command
is a good place to start.
