I'm glad it works well now, I fixed these paths in revision 7!

@AlphaJack Thank you very much for maintaining this package. It installed great.

Minor correction in /etc/ossec.conf where it reads


should read instead

I'm having problems getting this package to work also tried it on chroot.

Building I get this error

Fixed by installing the missing dependency geoip

ossec-hids.sysusers is never installed, but there are still errors even if I try to run ossec-control as root.

$ sudo /var/lib/ossec-hids/bin/ossec-control start
Starting OSSEC HIDS v3.7.0...
ossec-analysisd: Configuration error. Exiting.

Or ossec-logtest

$ sudo /var/lib/ossec-hids/bin/ossec-logtest

Tried installing ossec manually from and worked well.
