Has anyone tried to install ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Linux on their Slackware box?


The system requirements for ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Linux are:

Red Hat, Ubuntu, Debian, SUSE, Fedora, Mandriva, and most RPM and DEB Linux desktop distributions.

Can this be installed on Slackware?

I tried the download and install. Its says that after the install you need to reboot and an 'activate' application will start - it didn't.

I used ESET in my prior Windows life and it was great so I thought, why not in my linux life!

Any input would be appreciated.

I am also very interested in how to do this. Also, Cultist, the installer is a .linux file. I was also able to install it on a Slackware64 13.37 multilib system, but when I click the icon in the menu to start the gui, nothing happens. It appears it starts the process though, but after a few seconds it ends.

Start it from a terminal and see if you get any error-messages.

When I run it from the terminal it also does nothing. It starts the esets_gui and esets_scan.sh processes, but nothing ever comes up on the screen. The same thing happens if I click the icon in the menu for it. There are also no error messages.

open a terminal, go to /opt/eset/esets/sbin, and run esets_daemon

This will start the GUI for the antivirus. I have it up and working right now.

Edit: My guess is that since its intended for deb/rpm based systems, it for some reason doesn't make slackware boot with esets_daemon. Anyone know how to make it boot at startup?

Thank you for finding this out. Also, put /opt/eset/esets/sbin/esets_daemon in the rc.local file located in /etc/rc.d. That should make it start at boot.

You can convert .rpm and .deb packages to Slackware packages with src2pkg.

Hi Cultist:

In /opt/eset/esets/sbin, I did the following:

Code:
bash-4.1# esets_daemon start
bash: esets_daemon: command not found
bash-4.1#
Am I doing something wrong?

Edit:

I did as "blue_k" suggested above ( put '/opt/eset/esets/sbin/esets_daemon' in the rc.local file located in /etc/rc.d) and ESET launched and I was able to activate.


Thanks to all you slackers yet once again!
