Hi,

I'm using fedora core 5.

I tried to install avast using the rpm package. This rpm is marked as being built for i586. Anyway, I have installed it on my i386 system which might be the cause of teh problem I describe below.

It seems like the installation process was correct and I can see a avast icon to run avastgui. But when I launch avastgui, the system is running a task for a few seconds and then nothing happens.

Do I have to install using the tar file ?

Thanks for your answer ?

Wow, thanks a lot for the very quick answer dublin  :D

Here's what I get when I run avastgui with 1.0.5-1 i586 rpm package on my i386 :
/usr/lib/avast4workstation/bin/avastgui: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/avast4workstation/lib/libavastengine-4.so.6: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied

Then I have deinstalled 1.0.5-1 and have installed 1.0.6b i586 rpm on my i386 :
/usr/lib/avast4workstation/bin/avastgui: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/avast4workstation/lib/libavastengine-4.so.7: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied

Kinda same error message but with the latest library.

I have installed with root access.

Hope this helps you figure out my problem  ;)

Cheers,
R.

Ah well, I just read this thread about Fedora Core 4 with the guy having a quite similar problem (http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=19700.0).

What is interesting is that he then points to the AMD64 thread in which you state that AMD64 is not supported. As I'm using AMD64, I guess this can be the cause.
But your answer is dated february 2006 so I'm wondering ...... is this still true ?

Cheers,
R.

Merlin Whitewolf, here U are on-access Linux guidelines:

01. There are viruses on Linux.
02. There are on-access scanners for Linux.
03. Some of them DO NOT cost many:
       Google for Dazuko and AVIRA Antivir 4 LInux Free if U want to install avast!
       (it is pretty good by btw...)
04. There are some commercial on-access scanners for Linux:
       Sophos (with popups), Kaspersky (kavmonitor) and McAfee(?). But first, try Dazuko and avast! or Antivir.
05. If U are sure U want to use Fedora Core 5, google 4 :Unofficial Fedora FAQ"
06. On Fedora Core U will have to reconfigure kernel and recompile it. Only one setting is to change - capabilities should
       be compiled as M (module) not kernel.
07. If U do not want to compile the kernel, turn to Suse or Debian, both of them support Dazuko by default.
       On Suse there is build in Dazuko as well.
08. To use Dazuko U should compile it, so find kernel compilation man anyhow!
09. Newer use two of on-access scanners at one time!
10. Learn some iptables basics, or install Rootkit Hunter as well.

Although there are viruses on Linux and on-access scanners, don't get paranoid. Backup your files on separate partition.
Good luck
