Comment 1 Kevin Fenzi 2012-06-14 10:35:34 EDT

Comment 2 Harald Reindl 2012-06-14 10:44:15 EDT

however, once again

/usr/share/man/man5/.k5identity.5.gz   is part of krb5-libs on F17 but not F16

it is intentionally /usr/bin/ad

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2012-06-14 11:28:44 EDT
For the first item, I can confirm it here. I will talk with the upstream developers. 

For the second item, the /etc/rkhunter.conf as shipped should have: 


Can you check for that in /etc/rkhunter.conf or see if you have a /etc/rkhunter.conf.rpmnew ?

Thanks for the report.
Comment 4 Harald Reindl 2012-06-14 11:38:37 EDT
indeed there was a "/etc/rkhunter.conf.rpmnew"
seems on my test-vm i did not revert the changes in a clean way
and only created /etc/rkhunter.conf.local which leads to not
update the config

i did now the following steps which should fix this

rm -f /etc/rkhunter.conf.rpmnew
rm -f /etc/rkhunter.conf
yum reinstall rkhunter

for the netatalk false-positive i wait for a update....
Comment 5 Harald Reindl 2012-08-14 04:17:10 EDT
is there any progress?

the daily mails because netatalk are boring

Can you try adding: 


and see if that helps?
Comment 7 Harald Reindl 2012-08-14 16:52:55 EDT
thank you!
this does the trick
Comment 8 Kevin Fenzi 2012-08-15 15:59:07 EDT
ok. I pushed a fix to the config to rawhide. 

Will wait a while and see if we pick up a few more fixes before pushing to stable releases.
