    In order to install Avira and dazuko, i have to build a kernel with "linux capabilities" as separate module. How can i do this?http://forums.opensuse.org/images/smilies/confused.gif

    you can't. kernels starting 2.6.23 don't allow capability module to be not built-in into kernel, i.e. to be compiled like module. kernel developers took that decision for some reason.

    see this topic

    to build a custom kernel take a look here and also search the forum, recently there was a topic for that.

    especially for dazuko & Avira, only way right now to make them run (i mean avira on-line guard not on-demand scanner who doesn't need dazuko) is to build a kernel with dazuko built-in. brief instructions:

    download the patch from bug report i gave a link to above and remember location

    install needed packages: kernel-source MATCHING your running kernel, gcc, make - if unsure yast -> software managment -> check and install patterns "Base development", "C/C++ development" and "Linux kernel development"

    IMPORTANT: if you installed dazuko rpms from repos - uninstall them!!!

    now we go - execute the commands as root in terminal - i give the examples for current 11.0 kernel 2.6.25.5-1.1-default

    cd /usr/src
    md linux-2.6.25.5-1.1-dazuko
    cp -R linux-2.6.25.5-1.1/* linux-2.6.25.5-1.1-dazuko/ -> this will make a copy of kernel source tree
    cd linux-2.6.25.5-1.1-dazuko
    make cloneconfig
    zcat <full path to patch you downloaded and remebered location> | patch -p1
    make xconfig ->gui will appear
    click on General setup in the left panel and select Local version in the right one
    change the string from "-default" to whatever else, for example "-dazuko" without quotes
    navigate to Security options in the left panel, close to bottom, and select it
    in the right panel mark Dazuko support and Dazuko boot parameter
    save and exit xconfig utility.

    continue with commands in the terninal now

    make bzImage
    make modules
    make modules_install
    make install

    if everything is ok, you have a new kernel :-)
    reboot, select it in grub menu and (re)install avira

    NOTE: you may need to reinstall the video drivers for the new kernel
