Thanks for your generous effort describing all possible stumbling blocks on the road to success.


From default it is set to /root is that what it should be at? I test now to do
/mnt/home

should it maybe be /mnt/home/ instead? There are not examples to follow?

Error not a scannable file system object.
does one need some kind of *.* or something
haha now it is scanning. it needed the /

I am scanning this /mnt/home/ and it will go on for hours I guess.

report

Results:

Files: 57510
Skipped files: 6080
MBR/boot sectors checked: 0
Objects scanned: 109523
Infected objects: 0
Files with errors: 4
Disinfected: 0

Running time: 40:06
Scanned: /mnt/home/

I wonder about these:

Skipped files: 6080

could that be the clever virus hiding then?

Files with errors: 4

why do them name them like that? Could not be read or what?
It does not say how many virus or trojan I have?
I guess I should have included malware?

thanks for making it work. Now I only need to get what it says Smile

In my gui 2.3, the following "/" is not required. But I'm still having the same problem in browsing to my tartet folder. I can only get to the partition level with the file manager, then I have to type in the rest of the path....

In the gui, there's a tab called test, to show you that the scanner is working (the installation of xfprot plants a test virus for this purpose).

the test result looks like this

Quote:
F-PROT Antivirus version 6.3.3.5015 (built: 2009-12-23T13-43-55)

You'll see that if fprot detects a virus, it will list its name and location. In the gui I prefer to look at the report as a clearer way to see whether my search was successful by checking the path and the number of files checked.

I've found that xfprot/fprot (I don't know where the error arises) can't scan any file which has a space in it's name, such as commonly occurs with html pages saved to disk. I'm not sure, because I can't easily locate such a file to test, but that may account for the skipped files. If you have a directory/folder or subdirectory with such a name, it may skip it. I've also found other files which in which it finds errors.

If you have suspicions, narrow down the field (for instance, to a folder with few files, to see how many are successfully checked). Then submit the suspect ones to one of the online virus checking sites for a second opinion.

I'm also hoping to find out how to install clamAV in Puppy (I believe it's in the Ubuntu repositories), to provide a backup checker for fprot.

You're welcome nooby, and good luck.

Tasmod has created new pets, Xfprot and F-prot. I combined them and the result worked in my Dpup. It was announced in Lucid Puppy thread originally, sorry I dont remember in which thread, there are several nowadays. I would have posted straight link to original pets, but I post all of them here also.
I believe Tasmod wont be angry. Great update.

Install only the first pet or....second and third pet both.

Thanks pemasu and Tasmod. I uninstalled lucid Fprot 6, and the 2.3 xfprot pet, then installed the first of the listed pets as instructed. I had to restart x to make the icon appear in the utility menu, then downloaded the sig update, and everything seemed to function fine.

NB: I tried the browser navigation to set the scan path again, and this time I was able to set it by double clicking on the final folder. Maybe I neglected to try that in previous tests.

The one complaint that comes to mind is that there's no way to turn off scanning of subdirectories, so if you want to scan all the files in the root directory of a folder, you also have to scan all of the subdirectories. This could be a big waste of time if you need to scan files in the root directory of a partition. It would probably be faster to copy them all to a separate folder for the scan.

thanks pemasu for combining the two pets.

I d/l and installed in Dpup Exprimo 5.X.6. I had to run fixmenus to get the gui to show in utility > xfprot. First tried ctrl+alt+del and startx and did not appear.

I have used your combined pet only in dpup 5x6 full install
I used both pets provided by tasmod in luci-001 and lucid 528 on full install

Interesting that the pet wont perform fixmenus wm restart automatically. Maybe I have exceeded the official limit of the pet name. Lol.
I changed a little the naming and at least for me it now performs those installation automatisms ok. I reupload the pet.

Majorfoo. F-prot usage is best when you scan windows partitions and other ntfs-fat32 partitions.
Your scan result is normal by the way.

I have seven (7) different versions of puppy on my hard drive. Full install of each.
Rather than spend the time downloading the virus definitions for each version (large file), i download once and copy the original d/l version to each of the others. xf-prot must be installed on each before you can copy. virus definitions are stored in /opt/f-prot.
First time I update the virus definitions, I will delete the definitions in other puppies and copy again.

works for me.

I don't do windows on this machine. I have another pc with windows that is used for a special application that serves a special need for me.

I am 99% windows free.

Why are you not posting these to Additional Software (Pets N' stuff) ->Security/Privacy?
