    1. mkdir /usr/local/lynis
    2. cd /usr/local/lynis
    3. wget http://cisofy.com/files/lynis-1.6.3.tar.gz
    4. tar -xvf lynis-1.6.3.tar.gz
    5. cd /lynis-1.6.3 i got this message (-bash: cd: /lynis-1.6.3: No such file or directory)

    What is wrong with me
    Hope to help

      Step 5th is wrong, as you extracted the content of lynis-1.6.3.tar.gz in current working directory, so the command is:

      # cd lynis-1.6.3
