Hate to be a pain about this but rkhunter 1.3.4 doesn't check out with gpg:

gpg --verify rkhunter-1.3.4.tar.gz.asc rkhunter-1.3.4.tar.gz
gpg: Signature made Tue 30 Dec 2008 04:52:06 PM EST using RSA key ID 26447505
gpg: WARNING: signing subkey 26447505 is not cross-certified
gpg: please see http://www.gnupg.org/faq/subkey-cross-certify.html for more information
gpg: Can't check signature: general error

My local cert appears ok:
pub 1024R/A65F5E17 2007-07-22
uid "rkhunter@hushmail.com" <rkhunter@hushmail.com>
sub 2048R/26447505 2007-07-22

Thanks

    Thanks for your persistence (https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1928156&group_id=155034&atid=794187). The RKH GPG cross-certify issue however was addressed on the rkhunter-users mailing list recently. Please see mailing list thread https://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=bf3ea3900901012341n55fd1adfn4015b685b53c6b32%40mail.gmail.com&forum_name=rkhunter-users. The "gpg: Can't check signature: general error" seems to point to the signature being malformed. Please refresh the key and reply on the rkhunter-users mailing list (efficient & faster for most "simple" support issues) if it still doesn't work for you.

    Thanks in advance,
    unSpawn
