Description Jeremy C. Reed 2005-08-19 01:44:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; NetBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050721 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
Note my component above is wrong. The drop-down didn't provide my component. I installed it a couple times (on different Fedora Core 4 boxes) using yum from Red Hat repository. This bugzilla is taking me over ten minutes just to submit a simple bug fix. (And I do know bugzilla.) I assume others will give up before submitting a bug if it is this time consuming.

$ cat /usr/sbin/chkrootkit 
#! /bin/sh
cd /usr/lib/chkrootkit-0.45

Notice above last line is missing $*
Because of this bug command-line switches for chkrootkit are ignored.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "chkrootkit -l" and see it doesn't give you list of tests but actually
does the tests.

Actual Results:  It doesn't give you list of tests but actually
does the tests.

Expected Results:  $ /usr/lib/chkrootkit-0.45/chkrootkit -l
/usr/lib/chkrootkit-0.45/chkrootkit: tests: aliens asp bindshell lkm rexedcs sniffer w55808 wted scalper slapper z2 chkutmp amd basename biff chfn chsh cron date du dirname echo egrep env find fingerd gpm grep hdparm su ifconfig inetd inetdconf identd init killall ldsopreload login ls lsof mail mingetty netstat named passwd pidof pop2 pop3 ps pstree rpcinfo rlogind rshd slogin sendmail sshd syslogd tar tcpd tcpdump top telnetd timed traceroute vdir w write

Additional info:

Easy fix.

Or if you want it that way: Fix documentation.
