[licence]
key=your key

To use Avast you need the latest antivirus database file from Avast. There are different solutions to get the latest file.

1. Update the antivirus database with Linux
1.1. From the command line
1.2. With a graphical user interface
2. Update the antivirus database with Windows

1. Update the antivirus database with Linux

    You need a working Linux. This can be the Linux you are working with or Plop Linux. It's required to have a connection to the internet and a valid Avast license.

    If you use the Linux you are working with then you have to be sure that avastrc is placed in your user home directory ~/.avast/. Plop Linux copies the avastrc file to the required position during the boot process from ploplinux/opt/avastrc.

1.1 From the command line

    Run avast-update to download the latest antivirus database file. avast-update downloads the file 400.vps and saves it to ~/.avast/.

1.2 With a graphical user interface

    You can use avastgui to update the antivirus database file. avastgui saves the file 400.vps in your home directory ~/.avast/.

2. Update the antivirus database with Windows

    Update the antivirus database with the Avast graphical user interface. Right mouse click at the Avastball bottom right in the taskbar. Then click at Update and then iAvast update.
    The windows Avast is saving the file 400.vps in the Avast installation directory. Default for the english version is C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\DATA\.

When you got the latest 400.vps, then copy this file to the ploplinux/opt/ directory from Plop Linux.

When Plop Linux has been started, then run setupavast. Now the Avast files will be extracted and you can run avast.


AVG Antivirus for Linux


AVG is free for personal use. Download the latest version from http://free.avg.com/us-en/download.prd-alf.

Install AVG to your preferred Linux distribution with "sh avg85flx-r855-a3656.i386.sh"
This installs AVG to /opt/avg/avg8/

Then run "cd /opt/avg; ls"

When you see av then use "tar cfz avg.tgz av"
When you see avg8 then use "tar cfz avg.tgz avg8"

This creates the file /opt/avg/avg.tgz. Copy this file to the ploplinux/opt/ directory.

When Plop Linux has been started, then run setupavg. Now the AVG files will be extracted and you can run avg.
