What did I do ? -bash-4.0# instead of [root@obelix ~]#
Hello all,

Since yesterday I have an other prompt.

-bash-4.0# instead of [root@obelix ~]#
I don't know what I did to get it and I don't know how to get out of it

Anybody ?

Did you scan your system with rkhunter or chkrootkit?

Hello Falko,

RKHunter gets installed when following the perfect server tutorial, isn't it ?
So as far as I know it is running in the background.

-bash-4.0# ps aux | grep fail2ban
root      2165  0.0  0.4  57204  4888 ?        Sl  Apr17  0:37 /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/fail2ban-server -b -s /var/run/fail2ban/fail2ban.sock -x
root      8816  0.0  0.0  4220  752 pts/0    SN+  23:15  0:00 grep fail2ban


-bash-4.0# /etc/init.d/fail2ban status
Fail2ban (pid 2165) is running...
|- Number of jail:      2
`- Jail list:          fail2ban, ssh-iptables
You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root

I believe I don't have chkrootkit installed.

You can run rkhunter like this:

rkhunter -c

@ Falko,

attached the rkhunter.log As far as I know nothing found.

So my box is safe ( at this moment ) ? and there is probably an other reason for this.

Looks good! :)
Have you tried to reboot?

Hello Falko,

Unfortunally, more than once and it did not help.
The down side of this prompt is that I can not see in what directory I am.
