Extracting a preinstalled program from a Live distribution? Example: Kaspersky Rescue


Dear Friends at LinuxQuestions.org:
I have recently solved a virus problem in Windows using Kaspersky Rescue Disk: a Live CD/USB based on Gentoo Linux and KDE, that has preinstalled some Kaspersky cleaning programs, mostly Kaspersky Rescue Disk and Kaspersky Registry Editor, both running from KDE or (even text-only mode) command line:

http://rescuedisk.kaspersky-labs.com..._rescue_10.iso
http://rescuedisk.kaspersky-labs.com...rescue2usb.exe

The programs are cute, so I wanna be capable to install them on my usual Debian or Ubuntu hard disk distributions, but the CD does not include any installer, and the Live distribution is very simple: no apt-get, no aptitude, no dpkg at all.
As long as Kaspersky does not offer a single stand-alone download link for this program (but it is freely offered for download, so I think we are not breaking copyright laws and so on):
Is there any way to extract(export) these interesting programs so I can run them in another common linux installation in hard disk?
I can post details, or image captures if needed.

Thanks you very mucho for yor help.

Not sure if it is worth the bother, but...

Generally a program installs to /bin or /usr/bin

and the libs are at /usr/lib(64), you might try saving the files to /usr/local/bin ....and /usr/local/lib...

Config files? /etc and or /usr/share.

Good luck. Glenn

Might be able to get it all off the live cd by copying it to a flash drive or some other media.

I peeked at the disk on a very slow system to see it. Start by looking at the text command files. They would help you get started on where stuff is and what you need to copy over. Simple command like more 01 network setup file will show you some script. Darn if I didn't forget the path to some of those files too. Maybe /usr/bin had them.

The problem with this sort of deal is you might get it to work. Many of these specialty disks do some weird things to sort of protect their work.

It is well worth it to just play and learn. Things like kernel support and lib's may have to be looked at.


The intent is to run it from a live cd. Not sure if security would be an issue if you loaded it to some system.

Wink Oh... so it is not worth the price.

Thanks you, boys, for answering.
You were right: this is not a so easy matter, and is not maybe worth the bother. Not when there are several others free antivirus programs like AVG or Avast that supply a .deb or .rpm file for installing.
I was thinking that GNU/Linux would maybe have any sort of program designed to easily extract installed programs in the operating system, like it happens in Windows.

Thanks again for helping.

I have tried this, with kapersky(av) and phoronix(benchmarking).

I did not succeed. Too many differences.
