Greetings,

I must divulge that I am a total noob at Linux, so please so easy on me. I am trying to install anti-virus on my Linux parititon, and I have Wary 5.3.

Now, I was able to find this link - http://www.datafilehost.com/download-50e33fbf.html - which I got from puppylinux.org/wikka/clamav

So, couple of things - I take it this is the correct/most recent version for my version of Puppy?

I went ahead and downloaded it and it asked to open something with "pet" (sorry I forget them application) - which lead to it installing via the Puppy Package Manager. It says it's installed and it doesn't have a category. Problem is I don't know what to do from here. I've read the help and forum posts, but I can't figure this one out.

Any advice? Please go easy on me!

Thanks!
VV5

Just an update and some help needed.

I was able to install clamav and run it from the console. I used the second package found on http://puppylinux.org/wikka/clamav. Now it does run, but I have a couple of questions.

1.) I see a lot of warning when I run it from the command line. Does that mean it needs to be updated?

2.) How can I update clamav? Antiviruses need to be updated constantly.

3.) How can I add clamav to the desktop and the start menu, along with a update entry? Basically I'm trying to transition it from command line to an icon - as the system I am working with will be for someone else.

Thanks!
