Description Giovanni Mariani 2017-08-28 14:04:07 MSD
Description of problem:
Running Rosa 2016.1 x86_64.
The latest version of rkhunter (1.4.4) does not start and throws an error message on console:
"Invalid TMPDIR configuration option: No filename given, but it must exist".

BTW the same message is thrown two times at the installation time, when executing the %post instructions in the spec file:
if [ $1 = 1 ]; then
	# create rkhunter.dat
==>	%{_sbindir}/rkhunter --propupd
	# gather user / group info
==>	echo "\r"|%{_sbindir}/rkhunter --enable group_changes,passwd_changes
	# Suppress warning on fresh install because of missing copies of passwd 
	# and groups file above
	/bin/true
fi


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rkhunter-1.4.4-1-rosa2016.1

How reproducible:

3. Try to start the program: "rkhunter -c"
4. Error message (same as above) and no action done
