Post Xplico 0.6.1 for Fedora 11, 12, 13, and 14

I have built and released Xplico 0.6.1 for Fedora 11 (i386), 12 (i386 and x86_64), 13 (i386 and x86_64), and 14 (i386 and x86_64). You can find it at the CERT Linux Forensics Tools Repository ( Follow the directions to connect to the repository and then do
yum install xplico

I took lots of time (because I had to) to make the installation preserve an existing database. With the addition of additional configuration files in the database creation script, i needed to see if in fact these tables were missing from the database, in which case they needed to be added. Here is the post install script:

/sbin/chkconfig --add xplico
cd /opt/xplico/script/db/sqlite
if [ -e $DB ]; then
   echo "Preserving previous Xplico database"
   service xplico status | grep -q running
   if [ "$XPLICO_SERVER_STATUS" -eq 0 ]; then
      service xplico stop
   if echo .tables | sqlite3 $DB | grep -q '\<msn_chats\>'
      echo "Database $DB already has msn_chats table"
      echo -n "Adding msn_chats table to $DB..."
      sqlite3 $DB < msns.sql
      echo "done"
   if echo .tables | sqlite3 $DB | grep -q '\<paltalk_rooms\>'
      echo "Database $DB already has paltalk_rooms table"
      echo -n "Adding paltalk_rooms table to $DB..."
      sqlite3 $DB < paltalks.sql
      echo "done"
   echo -n "Turning foreign_keys on in database $DB..."
   echo "PRAGMA foreign_keys = ON;" | sqlite3 $DB
   echo "done"
   echo -n "Value of auto_vacuum in database $DB is "
   echo "PRAGMA auto_vacuum ;" | sqlite3 $DB
   if [ "$XPLICO_SERVER_STATUS" -eq 0 ]; then
      service xplico start
   echo "Creating new Xplico database"
   sh /
if [ -f /usr/bin/pcl6 ]; then
   cp -p /usr/bin/pcl6 /opt/xplico/bin
if [ -f /usr/bin/videosnarf ]; then
   cp -p /usr/bin/videosnarf /opt/xplico/bin

This release and the previous one (0.6.0) install the code necessary to use the Web interface. I've also provided an init script (that goes in /etc/init.d/xplico) that is based on the Ubuntu startup script.

Please provide any comments and feedback to With the holidays coming up, I may not be in a position to respond immediately but I will try.
