Problems after installation on Ubuntu 10.10
« on: April 26, 2011, 03:53:33 PM »
I have just installed Avast on Ubuntu 10.10, following this procedure:
Command 1: wget
Command 2: sudo dpkg -i avast4workstation_1.0.6-2_i386.deb
Command 3: cd /usr/lib/avast4workstation/share/avast/desktop
Command 4: sudo ./ install
Then I started Avast from the Applications menu, inserted the registration key that I had previously got and the GUI appeared.  I started the udpdate process and went on working on other matters
When I got back, all Avast icons and windows had disappeared and upon restart I got a message like "Deleted stale lock file '/home/..." and was asked again for my registration key. The same happened a couple of more times, then, after inserting my registration key once more, I got the following message:
An error occured in avast! engine: Unknown error no.42000
Can anybody help?
Thank you so much
