Hi guys,
according to the news "2010-03-23 New desktop subprofiles for GNOME and KDE"
I switched my profile from default/linux/amd64/10.0/desktop
to default/linux/amd64/10.0/desktop/kde

The strange stuff is that running rkhunter I got 58 warnings;
my rkhunter.log said that switching profile could lead to false positives

Is it normal? Do you experience the same problem?
I do not understand why changing profile could affect /var/lib/rkhunter/db/ even if I've never launched rkhunter -propupd

Thank you for your help

It might help if you post a portion of the warnings that are of concern and the exact message regarding profiles.

Changing profiles affects system files. System file changes generate warnings. Even without propupd, rkhunter tracks changes.


run rkhunter -propupd and they go away.
