Please, how can I install and use ClamAV in puppy linux?
I installed clamav via PPM, but it does not work.
I need it to scan files in a Windows partition from the puppy linux partition.
I use xenialpup 64

Hello morochos.

You have found the answer yourself: clamtk! Smile I mean that you need also to
install from PPM the tcl / tk language for clamtk. to work.

After that, it should be smooth sailing.

IHTH.

Hi musher0
But I tried that, and nothing happens when I click in the menu entry that is installed

when asking for help it would be great if you could answer the questions

I've tried them all doesn't tell us what you have installed or what you have not installed

download the ru xerus 64 puppy and run it, he's telling you it is included

I have tested with absolutely all related to clamav and clamtk in the PPM, without results. It would be great if somebody makes a pet file with it

Hello morochos.

It is difficult for me to help you adequately because I am based on a xenialPup7 32 bits.
I am working on something in my xenialPup 32 bit at the moment, and it would be
complicated for me to install the 64 bit version right now.

However, the procedure should be the same for your xenialPup7 64 bits.

1) To put ally's question in the 2nd post above another way:
how many components of the list below (please see illustration) have you installed ?

2) Now please check for the tcl/tk language supporting clamtk:
please open a console and type:
Code:
which wish
The "wish" utility is the motor for all tcl / tk-based programs. If you have it installed
properly,
Quote:
/usr/bin/wish
will show up on the next line in the console after you have typed the above.

If "wish" is not installed -- or not installed properly --, it may explain why you are having
difficulties with your clamAV.

Skip the following operation if you do not have a working "wish" utility. But please read
the paragraph anyway and make a mental note of it for next time. It is important.

3) clamAV needs an up-to-date database to work. This database is not included with
the program because it changes every day. Do you remember clicking on some button
in the clamTK interface to download such a database ?

Please post back your answers below so we can better help you. TIA.

IHTH.

You should have basically the same list in your xenialPup-7 64 bits.

Hi musher0
Thanks for your help.
I wrote the "which wish" code in the console, nothing was returned in the next line after pressing enter

Hello again morochos.

My pleasure.

I'm downloading 666 philb's xenialPup7.5 64 bit now with its devx. I should be
able to mimic your install in an hour or so.

In the meantime, I have set clamAV up on my 32-bit xenial.

I was wrong about clamTK being a tcl/tk program, I checked and it is a perl port
of the original. I apologize.

That said, could you open a console and type
Code:
clamtk
Do you get a panel like in the picture below?

Hello morochos.

I did install Phil B.'s xenialPup-7.5 64 bit and installed clamTK from PPM on it.

In short, the compilation and configuration of this clamAV are meant for an Ubuntu
distro, not for Puppy. For example, trying to run
Code:
freshclam -v
to get the current viruses DB meets with numerous problems.

From the docs I have read, since this is an ubuntu package, we need to create a
clamav user in /etc/groups and a clamav dir in /var with some mysterious sub-dirs
in it.

The way around this exists but means re-compiling the clamav package for
PuppyLinux. I'm afraid you were right in your first post: clamAV needs a pet
designed for Puppy.

If someone with a fast 64-bit PC could pick up the task of recompiling clamAV for
xenialPup-7.5 64-bits, it would be appreciated.

As I said elsewhere on this board, xenialPup-7.5 with the 4.9 kernel is "slow as
molasses in winter" on my old 64 bit, whereas 32-bit Puppies are snappy on it.
Furthermore, jwm does not play well with the monitor setup I have.

Sorry if I have raised false hopes. (But I went as far as I could with my set-up.)

Perhaps you can try the ComodoAV suggested by slavvo and ally? It's ready to go
on that Puppy. When you get right down to it, it does not matter from which Puppy
you do your WhineDose cleaning, does it?! Wink

BFN.

Yeah I got that too at first. The missing perl scripts are in the xenialPup devx.
Load that devx and the perl errors will disappear.

(However read my other message?...)
