I am currently using Fedora 14 (fully updated as of this writing).
I am not sure whether it's the Fedora or rkhunter developers who created the cron.daily file for rkhunter.
Working on the assumption (yeah I know, I know) that rkhunter developers are creating a cron.daily file I have the following suggestion.
Currently when rkhunter's cron job is running it's hogging CPU resources and causing the system to run really really slow. Therefore, I think it would be nice (pun not intended) to have something like:
renice +15 -p $$
ionice -c2 -p $$
placed inside the cron.daily file.
p.s. the actual values are, of course, subjective.
