The intrusion detectors I have experience with (aide and integrit) are
relatively hoggish beasts. If you think the machine is not good
enough for GUI, I doubt that it will be happy running one of these.
It may be possible (and even advisable, on security grounds) to run
them from another machine over NFS, though. Never tried that - anyone
else care to comment?
