Looks like you are not alone... It appears not to be compatible, and needs an update for latest Kernel..??

Support for the kernel stopped at 3.11 I believe. There is a way to get it running, I have tested it on a vb. You can try the following:

Download from here - Comodo AV

Double click on the deb file and install it.

Then open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo /opt/COMODO/post_setup.sh
Start Comodo from the desktop.

Ignore any errors, click on the Antivirus tab, and do Update Virus Database.

When that is complete, exit Comodo from the tray area.

Download - http://www.bondoffamily-net.com/~kinta-chan/techknow/DownLoad/src/beta/driver.tar?date=20140325 and copy it to /opt/COMODO/driver.tar replacing the other driver.tar file.

Open a terminal in the folder where driver.tar is and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo cp driver.tar /opt/COMODO/
Then open a terminal and do:

Code: [Select]
sudo /opt/COMODO/post_setup.sh
again.

Start Comodo from the Desktop. All should be well now.

It seemed like a good idea so I followed the instructions above....but, when I got to this bit:

"Download - http://www.bondoffamily-net.com/~kinta-chan/techknow/DownLoad/src/beta/driver.tar?date=20140325 and copy it to /opt/COMODO/driver.tar replacing the other driver.tar file."

I got a message, which flashed for a second that:

" could not replace file as you do not have proper permissions"

...or something similar...


What permissions do I need? And how do I get them?

thanks

wait...I think I know what I did wrong ...got too impatient and did not wait for the update to finish hence the program was still operating...would that be right?

So you did sudo cp driver.tar /opt/COMODO/ and it didn't work?

Did you

Quote
Open a terminal in the folder where driver.tar is

when you recieved no directory or did you open terminal in /home/username instead.

EG;
Code: [Select]
[email protected]:~$

instead of

Code: [Select]
[email protected]:/opt$

I'm assuming you have driver.tar in your home folder?

No it's not there, it seems to be in the comodo folder, or is that another "driver.tar"? And should I have oner in my home folder?

Sorry, I am not very good at this :(

In all honesty theres no need for AV on Linux. If you really insist on having AV, consider installing ClamAV.

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get get installl clamtk
Much easier :)

You want

Code: [Select]
cd /opt/Comodo
to run the command then since the tar is in the Comodo folder inside of the opt folder.

Then run the sudo cp command that Valtam gives you.

Valtam posted earlier than me so if wanting Clam. Go for it.

I have Clam, I wasn't sure if it was good enough...Comodo looked so much like something I was more used to. Installing Clam was super easy even for me.  If it's good enough then oK, but I hate leaving anything done half way. So I'll give it one more try.

Well a whole of stuff happened...pages of licensing agreement then it told me it was all installed!

But it did not work from the desktop i got the notice to run: /etc/init.d/cmdavd restart.

When I tried that I got this:

[email protected]:~$ cd /
[email protected]:/$ /etc/init.d/cmdavd restart
ERROR:To run this script make sure you have Super User (root) permission.
[email protected]:/$ cd /
[email protected]:/$ whoami
alex
[email protected]:/$ pwd
/
 I thought that when I was in "/" I did have root permission, or is Super User something even more powerful?

 :o
