    Can not initiate rkhunter 1.2.9


    I downloaded rkhunter 1.2.9 from RPM into my suse 10 os. The files are in my computer but there is no icon to intiate a scan anywhere. My computer indicates that all of the dependancies are present. I even found the license and the script file but no initation icon. Can anyone please help me with this? Thank You!

    I run rkhunter from the cli ... what do you get if you run rkhunter as root ? I have not tried it in openSUSE but I assume its similar and needs to be run as root. Typing rkhunter at cli as normal user gives permission denied ...

    I know that my computer has a command line interface but I do not know a thing about the correct way to use it. I have only used it once when Hazel walked me through deleting a windows file I had stupidly placed in Linux.

    Ctrl+alt+F1 should give you a terminal, login as normal user and use su to gain root rights and run rkhunter eg
    Code:
    su
    rkhunter -c
    That should give reasonable results ...
    When your done type
    Code:
    exit
    exit
    should return to normal user and logout in console, then ctrl+alt+F7 should take you back to GUI.

    I don't think sudo is setup in openSUSE by default but su above should work with the default config.

    You can check LinuxCommand.org for some good/quick lessons on using the command line under Linux.

    You'll be an expert in no time.

    Rkhunter gives a list of oftions that I guess I am supposed to choise from.

    the command instructions at Ozar's link say never be foolish enough to use the terminal as root.

    I need to go to barnes & noble and see if I can find a book ( command line for dummies )!!

    Believe it or not, the first Linux reference guide I ever picked up was Linux for Dummies. I found it to be very straight forward, concise and easily understandable... which is a good thing cuz I knew nothing about Linux at the time.

    Don't run as root is a good general rule ... but rkhunter is a system admin type task ... you need to run as root or sudo. By default I don't think openSUSE has sudo setup hence my suggestion using su to gain root access
