Lynis result with SUSE Tumbleweed


Hi
I thought I'd learn something about Linux security and tried out Lynis 3.0.6 on my SUSE Tumbleweed installation. However now I'm a bit confused.
After a scan many tests seem to be deprecated. Is this because there's something wrong with my SUSE installation or something to do with Lynis? A recurring item seems to be logtext, whatever that is. And the first section seems a bit alarming??

Regards Steve

Here's the section of the results that shows things as deprecated.

Hi Thanks for your reply.
I think this might have been the problem. I uninstalled the program and checked for stray files. Then I used the cisofy repository to install lynis. This worked fine.

Regards Steve
