@tumic:
do you mean "/etc/sysconfig/avast" ?

No, I really mean /etc/default/avast. If the file does not exist, then simply create it.

# /etc/init.d/avast
# Copyright(c) 2013 AVAST Software

EXEC="/bin/avast"
SYSCONFIG="/etc/sysconfig/avast"

RUNDIR="/var/run/avast"
PIDFILE="$RUNDIR/avast.pid"
PROG=`basename $EXEC`

# Include defaults if available
[ -r "$SYSCONFIG" ] && . "$SYSCONFIG"

if [ -z "$AVAST_USER" ]; then
        AVAST_USER='avast'
fi
if [ -z "$AVAST_GROUP" ]; then
        AVAST_GROUP='avast'
fi

Sorry, I thought you were using the deb package. On RHEL (rpm) it is really /etc/sysconfig/avast, not /etc/default/avast.

Any way to submit FP or undetected malware files directly from linux?

Technically, you can use the submit tool (/var/lib/avastSetup/submit) that is internally used
by avast when sending the statistics/heuristics submits manually, but it is not something we
expect the users will be doing...

Linux admins that will use avast will prefer to have such a tool :) We can improve a lot detection rate on linux by giving users possibility to manual submit suspected files (or files detected by other antivirus/antimalware programs and not detected by avast under linux)

I have RC3 installed and licensed on my home Unbuntu server.  I really want to test/try this before the license expires at the end of the month but I can not find any documentation.  Can you please point me to a guide of some sort to get started?

Thanks.

BTW - I am a happy uses of Avast products on Windows, Android, and Linux desktop computers.  I hope this will be the answer for my net facing media server (yes, I am paranoid  ;D ).

Currently the documentation comes with the packages and is accessible in form of text files and manual pages after installation. Just add repositories from the OP and install avast just like other programs - using package manager for your distro (e.g. yum for Red Hat and apt for Debian).

After the installation manual pages are normally installed on your system, just run 'man avast', 'man avast-proxy' or 'man avast-fss' on command line.

After a VPS update, the old definitions appear to remain in /var/lib/avast/defs. Is this necessary? I removed the old definitions and scan worked fine. Seems like avast.setup could easily be changed to delete the old definitions.

Other than that, everything is working on Xubuntu 13.10 amd64. Scans seem faster than with avast4workstation_1.3.0-2.

If the avast service is running, than the old definitions are deleted on update. However, when the service is
stopped and the VPS updates are still active (i.e. the cron job is still running), then the old definitions remain
in /var/lib/avast/defs (but can be removed manually as you did). It's a bug, that will be fixed in the next version.

Possible bug:

When the scan command contains a "-e" exclude option for a file or directory that does not exist, the scan stops. I suggest it should ignore and carry on.

License
A license suitable for all three products valid until end of march 2014 is attached to this post. You can use it without any restrictions for testing the products.

Is there a new valid license after 2014/01/01 ? Where can I found prices for different versions ?

According to sales/marketing, the products shall be available to buy on monday. Additionally, we
have updated the "trial" license here, so it is valid until end of April.
