rpm for avast-fss?

The RPM package is build and tested on CentOS (RHEL) 6 which comes with kernel 2.6.32 and has therefore no fanotify support.

x86_64 and amd64 are the same architectures. The difference is only the package naming convention on Debian/RHEL.
In other words, both packages will work on AMD and Intel CPUs.

Note: In the final release, there will be also packages for the i386 architecture.

I just wanted to shine some light for you guys on AMD64.  AMD64 is software extensions that allow 64 bit code to run on 32 bit processors.  So, in x86 architecture, there are no 64 bit AMD CPUs, and there are no 64 bit Intel CPUs. Intel EMT64 is the AMD64 code relicensed to Intel, so they may also run 64 bit code on their 32 bit processor. They are exactly the same. The only 64 bit CPU is the Intel Itanic, but it is not x86 architecture.Sincerely,

Hello,

It's nice to see Avast for Linux finally updated, even in Command Line Interface.

But please could you explain how to use it ? Where to save the license.txt file, how to activate it ?

How to scan the computer / a specific folder ? How to update the virus definitions ?

Even with the "man" help pages, I don't understand.

If I run :  scan -v
I get the answer : 40707

With : scan -V
connect(): /var/run/avast/scan.sock: No such file or directory

I've downloaded and installed the deb of avast core scanner only.

Thanks !  :)

The license must be located at /etc/avast/license.avastlic, its printed
into the console when you install the deb/rpm package. Additionally you can
find this info in the README file at /usr/share/doc/avast/.

The reason why retrieving the VPS version (scan -V) does not work is most
probably that the avast scan service is not running because it can not find the license
file. See the system log file (avast uses syslog) for details.

I have no idea how that project works, but If all you need are MD5 hashes of infected files, than you can scan a file using avast and compute the file's hash using md5sum, if the file is reported as infected.
