Misplaced language files
The 5.32 RPM for Mandrake 9.2 presently drops the needed language files etc in another directory than Analog expects and causes an error message about uk.lng file.

Suggest you move or copy at least the language files from /usr/share/analog to /var/lib/analog/lang

Besides it's useful to copy some of the example configuraiton lines from /usr/share/doc/analog-5.32/examples/big.cfg into the /etc/analog.cfg file to be able to control which sections the report include in text mode. It makes it possible to turn sections off. Presently in the default analg.cfg you can only turn pie charts off.

Analog has always provided tarballs. RPMs are a relatively recent addition, maintained by a third party.

Stop yer whining and download RPM. It's quick, it's easy,
and as much as I hate RPM, it's the only way to get some
programs.

I would be much happier if the home page provided tarballs instead of rpms, not all of us have condemend ourselves to redhat. Even though it seems like a real attempt to create good documentation, it remains confusing and hard to follow in some places, there seem to multiple places to configure the same options. I really like the output, very lynx friendly, but after several hours of fighting with it, I gave up.

Analog 3.31
Fast and easy to set up, very configurable. I spent less time setting up both Analog and Rmagic than I anticipated. A lot of people have very positive things to say about the speed of Analog; it seems quite fast to me, however, I have not benched it against any other products. The -settings option is awesome to show exactly what will be included/excluded in the report (I believe you can nessle up to 50 config files). The report can be in 3 formats, HTML, Computer (data), and I think one other txt/data format. Rmagic, a perl script than uses Analog's output, creates slick looking HTML reports with an index. Rmagic makes the output look as good as any log analyzer I've seen.
