BitDefender updating


how do you manually update the virus definitions in Mandrake 10? i downloaded cumulative.zip, used 'unzip' and then tried

bdc --update
bdc <path> --update

and still the package tells me that there are no virus updates available.
also the installation directory is on /opt/bdc, different from the one stated in the HowTo's (usr/local/shared/bdc7 ?)

any suggestions? thanks

Dear xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx,

Please make sure that you run ./bdc --update from the root account, because
BitDefender needs administrative privileges in order to write the files to
disk.
Also, make sure that UpdateHttpLocation is set to
http://upgrade.bitdefender.com/update7

We are looking forward to your reply.

Dear xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx,

Here is the default bdc.ini:
xtensions =
386:asp:bas:bin:chm:cla:class:cmd:com:bat:csc:dat:dll:doc:dot:exe:bat:hlp:hta:ht
m:html:ini:js:lnk:mdb:msi:nwscxlevlfdhpifotpaptrc:rtf:scr:sh
s:smm:sys:url:vbe:vbs:vxd:wbk:wdm:wiz:xla:xls:xlt:xml:xtp:
ExcludeExtensions =
HttpProxy =
Plugins = Plugins
UpdateHttpProxy =
LogMaxSize = 1024
RenameExtension = vir
PluginsPaths =
LogName = bdc.log
UpdateHttpLocation = http://upgrade.bitdefender.com/update7
LogOverwrite = yes
InfectedFolder = /var/bdc/infected
SuspectedFolder = /var/bdc/suspected

You have to be carefull because the first line is wrapped!
>From what package did you install BitDefender?
Are you using a proxy to access the Internet??

Dear xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx,

After downloading the cumulative.zip , uncompress the archive and copy the new
files to /opt/bdc/Plugins . Now you must change the file permissions and modes
to the files in /opt/bdc/Plugins:

cd /opt/bdc/Plugins/
chown root.root *
chmod 644 *

We are looking forward to your reply.

Best regards,
George Vasiliu
