Which linux distribution are you using? pygtk or python-gtk should be in the package manager.

You're using rpm, which doesn't resolve dependencies, to install AVG; have you tried yum?

Have you tried yum now? & did it work?

It would help others if you would post your results. Please tell us what happened.

Um why?? If you are running as normal user and not running as root(X11) you don't need a antivirus program.

And if you receive an email with a virus and pass it onto a Windows user without realising that you have a virus?

Not many people do, but just because we're safe (at the time of writing) doesn't mean we shouldn't look out for our less fortunate friends

Hey,

I don't think you need to install an Antivirus in Linux. I've been using linux for a while without an Antivirus and I have no problems.
Hope this help!

It's along the lines of not letting your friend know that he didn't lock his car because your own car is locked up just nicely.

Being immune to a virus doesnt prevent you from being a carrier.
