No, I haven't tried this yet. Is there a certain naming scheme or the
like? I have my list (gentoo.dat) in the default db directory, and
rkhunter doesn't seem to pick up on it. Do I need to call it
defaulthashes3.dat, or is it that rkhunter will read all *.dat files
if --dbdir is specified?
Thanks for the super fast response
Sorry for the dupe Mickalo, forgot to reply to the list.
