Centos 5.5, rkhunter result in logwatch mail


Hi all,

I have a server, running Centos 5.5. It runs daily rkhunter and logwatch. From both I get a daily mail.

I have a desktop computer, running Fedora 13 (almost 14...). It runs also a daily rkhunter and logwatch. But I get ONE mail from logwatch, which contains the result of rkhunter.

On the server, I want also only mail from logwatch, containing the rkhunter results. But so far, no luck.

How can I get the rkhunter results in the logwatch mail on my Centos server?

RKH doesn't log to syslog except start and finish times: see 'man rkhunter' the "--syslog" switch.
