    Default Installing new software...

    I now there many " The most of the Linux-Users " gonna say, it is not needed... But.
    I will install clamav on openSUSE 11.1, reason, i get mutch mails with attachement coming from Microsoft xp.
    Now, clamav will not install, if i surch the internet i find some, but the same story.
    I love working with openSUSE on me AMD-Athlon, the one thing who is missing is a scanner.
    I think when we are with more and more Linux-Users a good virusscanner can be usefull. Its MAYBE not needed, but with an eye on the future ???
    Please some help.

    Hi,

    Have you tried installing it through Yast? It's in the repositories.

    Open Yast then choose Software Management. Then search for clamav.

    Take Care,

    Ian

    I haven't tried it yet, but Avast! includes a scanner for Windows/Mac/Linux (so I can see about using the same application on all of my machines). And the home version of them are all free.

    I like the idea of an available Linux scanner *IF* they are going to actually keep up-to-date with the Linux virus definitions. It's no use if they are caught in the same "Linux doesn't get viruses" and take a while to wake up when one does arrive.

    I do agree, though, that even if you are running Linux, running an anti-virus checker for emails coming and GOING to Windows users keeps you from becoming known as "Virus Vincent"!
