AVG?
« on: October 07, 2010, 08:08:12 AM »
Hi, everyone!

I'm PXE-booting Plop to run virus scans on netbooks, etc. with AVAST and F-PROT, and I was wondering if anyone has gotten AVG to work with it yet.  A quick search of the forum yielded no results.

I've downloaded the tar.gz but haven't tried setting it up yet.  I'll probably just modify one of the "usewhatever" scripts, but I was wondering if anyone else is doing this and if there were any "gothchas" to look out for.

If I get it working, then I'll post a little howto here.

Thanks!

a possible solution to run avg is:

first install avg with your preferred linux to a local machine as root.
sh avg85flx-r855-a3656.i386.sh

this installs avg to /opt/avg/avg8/

next run
cd /opt/avg
tar cfz avg.tgz avg8

this creates the file /opt/avg/avg.tgz. copy this file to the pluspacks (or ploplinux/opt/ for ploplinux 4.1 and higher) directory.

now create a script maybe "useavg" to prepare avg during ploplinux startup
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh

echo EXPORT AVG8INSTDIR=/avg8 >> /root/.bash_profile
echo EXPORT PATH=$PATH:/avg8/bin >> /root/.bash_profile

tar xfz /media/pluspacks/avg.tgz -C /

echo /avg8/lib >> /etc/ld.so.conf
ldconfig


run the useavg script with runme.sh (or rc.local for ploplinux 4.1 and higher)

when i forgot nothing, then you are able to use avg :)
i think i add this to the next release

this solution copies avg to the ram, when you don't want to waste ram space with this, then its also possible to use avg on a storage or network drive

I wasn't able to get to it today, so I'll give it a shot tomorrow.
