Total SuSe o.s. novice here....

Is SuSe 9.1 compatible with any DoD approved Unix or Linux "trusted" type
system auditing tools? For example SNARE app. running on RHL 9.0.

Thank you to any and all who helpfully respond.

While SNARE appears to be POSIX compliant and should run on SuSe i have to
wonder why you would not use SNORT which IMHO is the defacto standard
for IDS within Linux.
SNORT and Tripwire have been protecting many systems i've put
into production with much success.
SNARE looks pretty good and i just might give it a try so i can
offer more perspective on it.
And i notice you say

system auditing tools

Nessus is the best auditing tool around (again IMHO)
