User Manual for Avira AntiVir Server | Unix and Avira AntiVir Professional | Unix

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/08/26

PDF User Manual for Avira AntiVir Server  | Unix and  Avira AntiVir Professional  | Unix.

It is not completely up to date (as most installations are now RPM based), but gives great background information.

If you are using SUSE Linux, then note that as of openSUSE 11.3, there is a glitch when you use the SUSE security repository (see Bug 633771 – antivir cannot be installed because of missing libdazuko.so).

Basically there are two solutions to this:

  1. Ignore the dependency issue;
  2. Use the Avira repository.

The former seems to be a viable solution as per PDF User Manual, the installation proceeds as follows:

linking /usr/lib/AntiVir/guard/libdazuko.so to /usr/lib/AntiVir/guard/
libdazuko3compat2.so...

And indeed it does: these are the steps to follow, first for adding the security repository, then to install the package (click on images to view larger versions):

(note that I’m running btrfs, so I have snapshots to which I can revert).
