I haven't really even got an AV program...for firewall though I'd recommend Firestarter if you like something that is easy to use.

I have firestarter on my system but I can't get that to run like I can't get my AV to update when I try to run FS I get this message:

firestarter: error while loading shared libraries: libgnome-keyring.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This was going to be my next question but as you mentioned it I thought 'd bring this u to with the hope of some support

I'm assuming it dosn't have the library files? but when I do a search I can only find the files for the other distros and not Suse dose anyone have a link?.

clam config files, nano -w /etc/file do this as root, the files are well commented and all I did was comment out (#) the line that said it was an example.

Hi Jollyjoice

I don't know if your reply was in responce to my question but if so was it in relation to clamAV where I got this message

dad@linux:~> freshclam
ERROR: Please edit the example config file /etc/freshclam.conf.
ERROR: Please edit the example config file /etc/clamd.conf.
ERROR: Can't parse the config file /etc/clamd.conf
dad@linux:~>

or in relation to the firestarter thread?

could you expand on this and also explain a little more as I typed in nano -w /etc/file as root but got

command not found

You probably don't have nano installed. You can try editing the file with pico (nano is a pico clone, but pico isn't installed in many distros because of license issues). If you don't have pico, you can try vi or emacs, but those editors aren't particularly newbie friendly. Your best bet is to install pico or nano from RPM.

Thanks will try that. As you have guessed I do tend to download RPM's rather than Bzips and Tar's as I have problems getting them running thanks for mentioning RPM's

*Always* use packages (RPMs, debs, etc.) made for your distro, unless you *have* to have something not available as rpm, or you are very comfortable compiling/installing from source. It will save a lot of headaches.

as for not having pico or nano, you should have vi i have yet to see a distro that does not come with either vi or vim.

What to delete would wellcome some help????????

##
## Example config file for freshclam
## Please read the freshclam.conf(5) manual before editing this file. ( is it this line ?)
## This file may be optionally merged with clamd.conf.

# Comment or remove the line below.
Example

# Path to the database directory.( or this line )
# WARNING: It must match clamd.conf's directive!
# Default: hardcoded (depends on installation options)
#DatabaseDirectory /var/lib/clamav

# Path to the log file (make sure it has proper permissions)
