Package: aide
Version: 0.11a-3
Severity: minor

If there are two amanda.conf files the aide complains as dirname
only takes one command. The fix (see patch) is pretty simple

# aideinit
dirname: extra operand `/etc/amanda/normal/amanda.conf'
Try `dirname --help' for more information.
Running aide --init...
dirname: extra operand `/etc/amanda/normal/amanda.conf'
