Oky-doke, sorry for double-creating-threads but.... I just downloaded and installed rkhunter and it placed itself in the /home/username space. I don't want it there!!! I want it in my folder I just made called "/home/username/stuff"!!! Not "/home/username"!!!

(I would actually have it as an application under the list but that doesn't look like it is possible so....) How can I move it? It requires root access yes, but I log in as root, and duh! can't access my profile cause I'm root............ can I move it through the terminal?

ok, so you want it moved from /home/username to /home/username/stuff, just do

mv *.* ./stuff

but beware that that *.* will move everything, so try *.c, *.sh, as to not include the folder into the folder you want to move...

doesnt rkhunter make its own folder when its unpacked? if so just move (mv) that folder into stuff so you would have /home/username/stuff/rkhunter

also as a tip of prefernce most things like this would be placed in /usr/local

if you want a quick guide to rkhunter,chkrootkit and a good av for linux check my guide at
