checkroot v1.5 released

Category: programs,
Source: checkroot,
Language: en,
Type:
update
.
various bugfixes, new output format, small package coverage improvements:
bugfix: verified.annot (output) was sometimes delted by accident with version 1.4 ** important **
maximum of 4 tries if rpm can not be downloaded (no more hang in quasi-infintite loop)
do not skip parsing core repos (*/repo/oss/*,repo-oss,repo-non-oss) on --seekunknown(&--update): they do not keep old rpm-file versions available.
different ver/arches of same package installed: assume all of them are of same repo (previously only one ver-arch allowed for any package)
found other ver/arch in zypper.lvarious bugfixes, new output format, small package coverage improvements:

different ver/arches of same package installed: assume all of them are of same repo (previously only one ver-arch allowed for any package)
found other ver/arch in zypper.log than is actually installed: previously: guess of same repo as in zypper.log; now: guess that of other repo if exact ver-arch match can be achieved on usage of --seekunknown (provider-repo may have changed).
changed format of output files: "pkg ver-rel arch" instead of "pkg-ver-rel": easier to parse
tiny bugfixes: number of updates that could not be performed: displayed correctly; no spurious "root not found" error message when run on plain dir; detects if pkgs.lis is missing; detects and crops if zero length primary.xml[.gz] "downloaded".

checkroot v1.4 released

Category: programs,
Source: checkroot,
Language: en,
Type:
update
.
reports an error if rpm --verify fails. ** important ** (problem has arosen due to a bug in rpm (bug 527191).
added the --update and --seekunknown switches: They provide a better coverage/hit rate where package headers have to be downloaded (due to an invalid signature).
continue scanning on reinvocation if interrupted by keyboard (even if root has different mountpoint),
rootkit.files: added rpm (a very common target for rootkits)



checkroot v1.1 released

Category: programs,
Source: checkroot,
Language: en,
Type:
update
.
skip intro if keys already fetched
python-rpm dependency dropped for readhistory
try to fetch with currently installed version-release-no if latest update does not show up in zypp history (f.i. if updated with rug) but assume same repo as before
setup ipc with readhistory: for future changes
option parsing improved



checkroot v0.9 released

Category: programs,
Source: checkroot,
Language: en,
Type:
update
.
better colorization: orange if signature invalid; red only if header download failed
best effort: try to verify even if signature invalid and header download failed (unless not disabled by -p)
updated: rootkit files (df, telnet, libc, kernel, ...)
offer a --verbose switch passed to rpm --verify
crop spurios % chars in uri: %253A -> %3A (%25~%) zypper bug? -> buildservice repos at http://download.opensuse.org/repositories
other improvements & bugfixes (option parsing, --freshen switch, errmsg if not root, repo-root guessing ...)
