New Development

The pre-alpha relesead yesterday is to be considered as a proof-of-concept, in the next days the first alpha release will see the light (marked as 0.2pre1).
And, good news for all those who hate Basic - IDRA is moving from GAMBAS (a very good tool) to C++ (with Kdevelop and QT).
The new package (it will be named IDRA-kde) will be released within some weeks.
All your opinions and comments are welcome

Initial Release 0.1 Pre-Alpha Public Release

- rpm for SuSE & Redhat
- Written using GAMBAS, so it's very easy to customize
- USB Hardware List (very fast as it uses lsusb as backend)
- USB model name, USB type and USB Max-Power are reported
- PCI Hardware List (yes, I use lspci)
- Dmesg check (with a search text if you need to search a string)
- FTP Log Check (I use VSFTPd so it searches in /var/log/vsftpd.log)
- In the next release I'll add custom path
- Daemon Check (with runlevel)
- Kernel Modules Check (it reports all loaded modules, with modules info)
- Filesystem (reports all mounted filesystems, *thanks df*)
- Network Check (reports only ethernet for now, this is still a pre-alpha after all!)
