Default rkhunter report problems (no warnings, but maybe infected system)

Hi there,

I've a problem with rkhunter.
I created a cronjob, running daily at 19:55 (CEST) o'clock and mailing me, if there are any warnings.

Every time rkhunter ran, I get a mail containing "Please inspect this machine, because it may be infected.".

I can't see any problems/warning when I take a look at the logfile, which i'll attach to this thread.

What does he want to tell me?

The warning in the log file is:
Warning: The kernel modules directory '/lib/modules' is missing or empty.
It looks like your kernel support modules but there are none on your system.

To fix this warning, edit rkhunter.conf (should be in /etc) and find:
DISABLE_TESTS="suspscan deleted_files packet_cap_apps apps"
Change it to:
DISABLE_TESTS="suspscan deleted_files packet_cap_apps apps avail_modules"
With a bit of luck the warning will be gone.
Never execute code written on a Friday or a Monday.
