hi,

has anybody an idea why this directory has to be hidden? each time I run
rkhunter it complains I should inspect this directory. I guess this
directory contains device information for udev, but has it to be hidden?

/dev normally contains only device names and hence udev stores its private configuration information in a hidden directory. Rkhunter complains because rootkits are known to create such directories. You can mail the rkhunter author to notify this and check if it has a whitelist or just ignore the message.
