I am using SuSEFirewall2 under SuSE 8.1, which creates /var/log/firewall log file.

Via changes to 'inputfiles_mask=' I tried to analyse other logfiles, which I created by grepping selected lines out of the firewall log. I tried to analyse single files only, not a set of rotated logs.

When changing inputfiles_mask and re-running fwanalog, files in outdir are recreated and have a new timestamp, but contents of fwanalog.all.log and all the reports are unchanged. Only deleting fwanalog.all.log seems to help.
