All the good names starting with g are already taken (by GNU or Google or other Gs). Like for example gnash (GNU) or gneat (Google).

I was going to suggest gneatly, and than saw that it has different context (in common english) than I previously tought.

Snoopies already exist. There were at least two DOS tools I can remember - one was a kind of tracer/debugger and other was system diagnostics tool. Fluff is file manager from Tiny Core (if you ever tought about that suggestion seriously ).

Someone suggested Sherlock. Why not Tobby?

gotcha - as in it's looking and watching and sees 'something suspicious' suddenly and yells it out (or maybe spell it 'got-ya').

Or how about Freeze! (like when a cop yells it at a suspicious person or whatever).

gnashley,

if you can’t decide now you can always start a multiple choice poll with the selected names.

If it is a 'lint' for multiple Linux distros, i.e. 'tux's, then the choice is obvious...

lintux

[EDIT]

Or thinking of a treatment for your system's pains in the arse...
lin-tucks

[/EDIT]

Since it is a Cross-disto Lint, perhaps you want to called the program eastwood.

Very good. I like it.
"This is the most powerful lint in the world...do you feel lucky, punk?"

How about:
autopsy
or
dissect


PS: you may throw some "g"-s or "gn"-s here and there, like:
gnautopsy
gdissect

The debian distro includes a tool called 'lintian' which is for inspecting packages -like what I want to do.
Instead of using weird names for a tool, I recommend to stick with something which is already in similar use in the Unix world:

Code:
checkpkg is a tool which checks Solaris packages for problems.

It analyzes files contained within package files. It's related to GAR, but it can be also used with any packages.

There is a reason, why something like upgradepkg is called upgradepkg and not BreakMyMachine.
