    Question Bitdefender for unixes crashes after latest kernel update on 11.4 64bit

    Hello community,

    I have a small problem since the latest kernel update (running now 2.6.37.6-0.9-desktop). Bitdefender (v. 7.6.4) , does load but crashes as soon as it has to load the antivirus engines. Of course the two incidents [kernel update and crash] may be unrelated, but I rather doubt it.

    I am running Bitdefender without problems for the last few years.
    Has anybody experienced similar problems?

    Kind regards

    PS: Please refrain from suggesting me clamav as I already use that too, and also from commenting on my paranoia

    Ok, I see i scared you all off. You are allowed to comment politely on my paranoia, if you can provide me with hints as to how to deal with this.

    some level of paranoia is ok, depending on how/why you use
    Bitdefender...could you enlighten us on that please..

    like what are you looking for, and where?

    I use bitdefender on my private laptop. I use this computer for online banking and general surfing as well, and it is often connected to a mixed environment (opensuse/windows) network with similar user habits.

    But as I sad, i would rather this thread not become a general discussion about the necessity or not of such programs.

    ok but, you didn't answer my question: what are you looking for?

    and, i ask not to send this thread off into "a general discussion about
    the necessity or not of such programs" but if you are looking for a
    dangerous linux virus then you are wasting your time and mine, because
    neither bitdefender nor clamav can look for such, because there are none..

    do you have windows on that computer, and is it your windows you are
    trying to protect?

    I don't use that program; I guess you are the only one here using it here.
    I had to look it up in WIkipedia.

    It is proprietary, isn't it? You will have to ask its devs. According to
    wikipedia, they have 24/7 support.

    do you have windows on that computer,..
    No
    and is it your windows you are trying to protect?
    Yes. I connect to a private windows network and don't want to function as a trojan horse.
    It is proprietary, isn't it?
    Yes, unfortunately, else I think one solution would be to recompile it from source.
    they have 24/7 support
    Yes, they do. For paying customers. The "free for private use" linux edition does not meet that criterion.

    Anyway, I am thinking about upgrading to 12.1 on the weekend (even though that would be a KDE downgrade for me) so there will be a new kernel, which might work better (or worse). Thank, you all for your time. And happy 12.1!

    not necessarily; since a couple of days, you find KDE 4.7.3 in the
    KDE:/Distro:/Factory repo for openSUSE 12.1 (
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_12.1/
    ). i'm using it, and at the moment it's perfectly stable. you'll only
    have to keep in mind that, when K:F switches to a new version, i.e.,
    4.7.8 in the future, it will become really unstable. normally ismail
    doenmez or other kind hearted souls post warnings on the opensuse-kde
    mailing list well before that happens.

    That is nice, so I will just have to make the repository switch from factory to KDE SC4.7 (or whatever they will call it) before that happens.
