CLI syntax
« on: March 25, 2005, 07:56:22 AM »
So I got avast installed and avastd starts and runs fine. When I try to run ./avast -_acp3 it looks like it is going to scan but then it comes up and says avast: no data to scan.

What am I missing?

Well it expects a path to scan (e.g. /home or whather) on the command line...
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

I tried that but it did the same thing.

Here is exatcly what I did when I logged on.

root@server1 [~]# cd /usr/bin
root@server1 [/usr/bin]# ./avast -_acp3 /home
avast: no data to scan
root@server1 [/usr/bin]#
avast: no data to scan


I also tried ./avast /home -_acp3 and got the same message.

you are trying the avast! to work in STDIN/STDOUT mode (some data are expected to be PIPEed to the command-line scanner). Please try this command: ./avast -acp3 /home
