i have tried the sh pavcl_linux.tgz

and that did not work i also just typed pavcl_linux.tgz

don't ask me were to put it cause i have no ideal i normaly just down load the rpm or what ever it is called and it installs for me ( i Lazy ) sometimes !
but when i was doing the download it was not working for me so i had to get it in the .tgz fourm

Did you read the installation instructions? Specifically the bottom part about what to do with a *.tgz?
Quote:
If Red Hat Package Manager (rpm) is not installed -for example in Debian-, use the .tgz file. In this case follow the steps below:
o Copy the pavcl_linux_i386.tgz file to the root / directory.
o Decompress the file using the following command:
gzip –d pavcl_linux_i386.tgz
o The file pavcl_linux_i386.tar is created.
o In order to install the antivirus, type:
tar –xvf pavcl_linux_i386.tar

When installation is complete, the required directory structure is created.
What linux distribution are you using anyway?

I'm not quite sure what we are supposed to do with all this....nobody is requiring you to learn linux---or even to use it.
If you DO want to move forward, use the time-honored advice: One step at a time.

What is the question? Where is WHAT at? OK--I'll guess: The red part is what you don't understand. Here is the command:
cp pavcl_linux_i386.tgz /
Since this is probably a unique filename, you can also do this:
cp pavcl* /

then you can shorten the other steps by simply doing:
tar -xvzf pavcl*

ok / is the top of the filestructure in linux. a few things:

1.) use "su -" instead of "su" this will load root's environment variables and put you in roots home dir. so instead of "root@localhost mornblade" you should get "root@localhost ~" for a prompt.

2.) "dir" is a dos command some distros will let you use it but not all use "ls"

3.) it seems strange that the directions have you use gzip and tar when tar can do both in one step.

So it seems you have the .tgz file saved in the folder "Desktop" in the user "mornblade"'s home folder you would want to do this:
Code:
[mornblade@localhost ~]$ su -
Password:
[root@localhost ~]# cp /home/mornblade/Desktop/pavcl_linux.tgz /
[root@localhost ~]# cd /
[root@localhost ~]# tar -xvzf pavcl_linux.tgz
[root@localhost ~]#
this is based on the information you provided so it may be flawed; but this should get you from where you are to where you would be by following their directions. keep this in mind whenever you install something as root: only install it if you trust the package because it could be anything.

I'm guessing you want to execute /opt/pavd/usr/bin/pavd -- I'm guessing the file you tried to execute was a language definition file which is non-executable.

It looks like you were running as root, so you'll have permission on any executable available.

BTW, is there some reason you feel you need antivirus. There are very few viruses for Linux and most which exist are proof of concept types that don't do any actual damage. If you're not sharing files with a Windows computer, your risk is fairly slight. There have been several threads on this in the security forum expressing different opinions -- you might want to check them out. Also Google for the Rute user's tutorial as it's a very good introductory Linux tutorial that might help you understand a bit more about the system.

yea i use limewire and download music to put to a CD
and i am a cheep @ss and don't want to spend money for the whole CD that has songs on it that i don't care to here.

and i guess after having windows system for the past 7 years of having a computer i always had a anit-virus
so am i making a fuss over having a anti-virus installed for nothing?

P.S
i will go check out the other threads if i can find them.

Hey thank you.
