    avast! antivirus for linux


    Well, I love this antivirus. I've use it when Im using Winblows and now it release for linux. I download it and install it as well. But It seems this antivirus cant run because of missing library libc.so.6.
    I check from yast and it stated this file is already installed along with package glibc. Search it and found the file under lib folder. Anyone here had tried avast? I just want to know how do you related the file into avast binary so avast can find the file whe it start.

    If you install gcc, the glibc libraries should come along with it. Try installing it through YaST.

    Check in YaST for "glibc" and see if all your libraries are installed. I did a search for libc.so.6, and it is indeed part of the standard libc libraries.

    I've checked it. All glibc packages are installed. I've also search libc.so.6 on my linux box and found that file in /lib.

    So you have libc.so.6, but the installer is telling you it's not there? Is there a way to point the installer to it?

    That is what I try to find and main point of why I create this thread. Got other solutions?

    Does avast have a help page? The problems seems to be with their installer rather than your system. Sorry I can't be of more help. :/
