logcheck for Debian
-------------------

Resources
~~~~~~~~~
Homepage: http://logcheck.alioth.debian.org/
Wiki: http://wiki.logcheck.org/
Lists: http://logcheck.alioth.debian.org/lists.html

Configuration
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Logcheck configuration is done in the file /etc/logcheck/logcheck.conf.
To change the email address to which reports are sent, change the line:
	SENDMAILTO="root"
to:
	SENDMAILTO="emailaddress@some.domain.tld"

The reportlevel (that is, the degree of filtering applied to "routine" system
events) can be reduced from the default by changing the line:
	REPORTLEVEL="server"
to:
	REPORTLEVEL="workstation"
or increased:
	REPORTLEVEL="paranoid"

Note that "server" includes "paranoid" and "workstation" includes "server"
(which includes "paranoid").

There are a number of other options which are documented in
/etc/logcheck/logcheck.conf itself.

By default logcheck is set to run once an hour. This can be changed by editing
/etc/cron.d/logcheck.

Please note that the permissions of rulefiles installed with
dh_installlogcheck after installing logcheck will differ from those included
in logcheck-database. This is because dh_installlogcheck cannot yet assume
that the logcheck user exists.  This may be changed in a future version of
Debian.

Backports
~~~~~~~~~
See /usr/local/share/logcheck-database/README.backports.gz .

Getting the source/contributing
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Debian logcheck package is now maintained in Subversion:
  anonymous:    svn://svn.debian.org/svn/logcheck
  write access: svn+ssh://aliothuser@svn.debian.org/svn/logcheck
  web svn:      http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/logcheck

Instructions how to use SVN and how to build packages from the source:
  http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/logcheck-devel/2006-July/002743.html
  http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/logcheck-devel/2006-July/002746.html

You should be able to import this into an SVK checkout even without write
access, so submitting patches has just become even easier. Submissions for
documentation welcome, watch this space.
