rkhunter for centos


I get this in my rkhunter report everyday:

Determining OS... Unknown
Warning: This operating system is not fully supported!
All MD5 checks will be skipped!

Any ideas on how to add centos to rkhunter?

If you're not running version 1.3.4 of RKH then install the new version?

Yeah, that may be true for your repo, but not in R/L. The 1.2 series is utterly deprecated. And 1.3.4 shouldn't be hard to RPM-ify since the tarball includes a .spec file.

any ideas on why it hasn't been added to CentOS?
Installing using RPM is such a painstaking process, don't really understand it yet unpacking then making some configure file, then making some directories and installing into that? Why not just have an autoinstall.

Check EPEL repo and you'll find rkhunter-1.4.3-5.el5 there or grab the rkhunter-1.3.4.tar.gz tarball and (as unprivileged user) run 'rpmbuild -tb rkhunter-1.3.4.tar.gz' after you configured your buildroot.
