What are these file no's
« on: June 11, 2008, 08:13:30 AM »
Thanks to Zilog for putting the error no's up but it has left me even more confused. I turned off Time machine and ran a scan again and it failed at the same spot with 2 error boxes. One says "The file  scan daemon died scanning path 1 of one paths (0 remains) " and the other says " The application com.avast.MacAvast.MAD quit unexpectedly". It also says it has found 473 items with 480 not processed. The vast majority of these are err 13 with a description

part of package: does not belong to any package and a file name similar to  these 2 examples

"/.fseventsd/000000000000032c"
"/.fseventsd/00000000001f8bd8"

Does "err 13 - permission denied" mean that Avast cannot check them? Surely that is a fundamental issue with a virus checker?

What do they mean? I am new to the MAC and I am not used to file names looking like that?

I saw the instructions to download a different com.avast.macavast.mad in the previous "crash" thread so I tried but when I came to copy the new version into resources it told me I didn't have the right privileges. What am I doing wrong?

Err 13 is normal, Dont worry about it. The Next Version wont report it so much.

To be able to overwrite the com.avast.macavast.mad file you will need to change its permissions. You can do this in the Terminal or with the Finder's Get Info box.


Most users dont understand the Terminal so here is how do do it in the Finder:

1) Navigate to the com.avast.macavast.mad file
2) Right Click and choose Get Info
3) Notice that under the Sharing and Permissions Section that only the System can Read and Write
4) At the Bottom Click the Padlock icon and Enter your admin password
5) assign Read and Write privileges to the Admin Group under Sharing and Permissions

Note that im on Leopard but it should be almost identical on Tiger. Also once you replace the file with the new one you should change the Permissions back to read Only.

Thanks for that. I did what you said but the new version also failed, pretty much at the same spot. It reported on 496 items, 493 unprocessed, 5 selected.

With the exception of the following list, all the file names were similar to the first and last in this list. Do you want me to try anything else?

Are these files being reported with a Err 13? because lots of them like the /private/ and /library  directories probably would return that error. And Like I said Error 13 is not something to worry about and will be reported less often in the next version.

But if the scanning daemon is still quitting that is something we need to figure out  :-\

They are all err 13 with the exception of the examples below:
I hope it helps - I have typed the scan result field in brackets

(An observation by the way - on my screen the err no's are in a very light turquoise and not distinct - how about darker blue or even black)
