Title: COMODO anti virus installation problems.
Post by: Tramlink on March 22, 2013, 02:54:38 pm
I am testing this new Linux anti virus program on peppermint 3 32bit and I am stumped with one final problem.

After installing you have to run the following command " sudo /opt/COMODO/post_setup.sh

Everything goes OK untill the last two lines.

RedirFS kernel modules have been successfully installed.

/opt/COMODO/load_cmdagent.sh: 64: .: Can't open /etc/init.d/functions
/opt/COMODO/load_cmgdaemon.sh: 64: .: Can't open /etc/init.d/functions

Any help would be appreciated.

http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/antivirus-for-linux.php (http://www.comodo.com/home/internet-security/antivirus-for-linux.php)

As I am running peppermint I downloaded the mint option 32bit

Instructions pop up during the installation of the software....

OK, Ive tried to get Comodo to work .. I can get past those errors, but the on-access scanner still doesn't work, and it tells you there's a problem on startup .. though the normal scanner works.

I've tried Bitdefender, which can be installed in Peppermint with a few tweaks .. but it doesn't appear to have an on-access scanner either.

AVG *has* got an on-access scanner (which stops you even accessing the eicar test virus files), but hasn't got a GUI

Theoretically I suppose you could have both AVG and Bitdeefender installed .. but IMHO you need neither unless you're running something like a file/mail server that services Windows PC's

I may test others soon, but I've had enough of putting stuff on my system that's unecessaary for now ;)

Meanwhile, if you want instructions for AVG or Bitdefender .. just  ask :)

I have been using Bitdefender for some time.  I was testing this for use on new systems for ex windows users they tend to feel happy if they have a working virus scanner they can see working.

Thanks for taking a look.
