Question where is this command ?


HI !!

I installed an antivirus,to start it I issue the command pavacl.now I need to enter this command to crontab so the antivirus will start automatically so I wanted to know what is the path to the command so I tried:

[root@mr panda]# whereis pavacl
pavacl:

what does it mean ?


I tried also :

[root@mr panda]# which pavacl
/usr/bin/which: no pavacl in (/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/root/bin)

I dont understand where is the command and what to enter in the crontab ?

thanks

'whereis' is saying it doesn't know where it is, I think. Ditto for 'which', though it's more verbose about it.

Do an 'updatedb' and 'locate' and that will find it even if it isn't on the path - or check the Makefile and see where 'make install' would put it. Then add it to your path.

Which command? 'updatedb' should exit silently unless something's wrong. And 'locate' should spit out something unless it's not on your system. Only thing I can think of is that the program installed to a restricted directory. I think 'slocate' actually doesn't show everything if you don't have the right permissions. Try it as root or I have to figure something went wrong with the install.

Or there's a typo in here somewhere.

Hm. Well, I'm not familiar with the program. What distro are you on and how did you install it? Everything went well during that process? What's the name of the tarball/rpm/deb/tgz itself? Like I say, if you do have a proper slocate database that's up to date and have access to everything and it doesn't find it, it's a good bet it isn't there.
