However,even if compile successfully,startup.log will not be generated.Maybe e4rat has some usability problems.This package needs more patches to make it work.

@kingfared you may want to use e4rat-lite-git instead, since it does work.

CMake Error at /usr/lib64/cmake/Boost-1.72.0/BoostConfig.cmake:120 (find_package):

This error stops the build. Audit is built according to wiki.

I had to modify the source. What I did was replace that problem line in logger.hh: #define debug(format,args...) dump_log(Debug, "%s:%d in %s(): "format, __FILE__, __LINE__, __FUNCTION__, ## args) with: #define debug(format, ...) logger.write(Debug, "%s:%d in %s(): " format, __FILE__, __LINE__, __FUNCTION__, ##__VA_ARGS__) and then did a makepkg -esri. On a side note, when I first ran this, the startup.log file was blank. The easy solution was to follow cubethethird's advice and replace every occurence of: Config::get<std::string>(“startup_log_file”).c_str() with: "/var/lib/e4rat/startup.log" More information at

Rebuilt audit with 'staticlibs' added in the 'options' array of the PKGBUILD, but e4rat still won't build.
