Avast! Linux BETA - Send to chest = error
« on: July 31, 2005, 08:17:25 PM »
Hello!

Been using the beta for a while now and this error happens all the time.

When a virus is detected and I click on send to chest the following error occurs

Seek error on file `/home/......./.avast/
chest/000001` (large files not supported by stdio)

See attached screenshot.

After clicking on ok the scan continues to run.

Despite the error the infected file is sent to chest.

Operating system = Fedora core 4 x86_64
Also happens on Fedora core 4 (32 bit version)

I can confirm the send to chest error has been fixed  :)

However I now have another problem.

I can only run avast as root. The error message for non root users is,

Cannot launch entry

Details: Failed to execute child process
"avastgui" (Permission denied)

The problem is in a script, that creates installation packages. Try to manually set permissions at lib/avast4workstation/bin/wrapper-script.sh file to 0755.

Tried the latest rpm package, everything seems to be working fine  :)

I feel a lot safer now  :P
