2.1 System recommendations

Although F-PROT Antivirus for UNIX Mail Servers will operate on less vigorous machines, this recommendation is to ensure optimum system operation.

  • Intel Pentium or higher / AMD K5 or higher
  • Most UNIX distributions, including SuSE, Red Hat and Debian
  • 10 MB of available hard disk space

System requirements for F-PROT Antivirus Mail Scanner:

F-PROT Antivirus Mail Scanner depends on the Perl 5.8 interpreter being present. If your computer does not have Perl 5.8 installed by default, please consult your manual on how to install it.

F-PROT Antivirus Mail Scanner also depends on a couple of Perl modules. MIME::Base64 and MIME::QuotedPrint need to be present on your system in order for Anomy to work. To install these modules, run the command 'perl -MCPAN -e shell' from your command-prompt as root. Complete the questionnaire, and when you reach the cpan prompt ("cpan> ") type in "install MIME::Base64". Next, type in "install MIME::QuotedPrint". That should complete the installation of the two modules.

Please note if your system meets the requirements stated here above but you still receive a failed dependencies error, use the --nodeps argument when trying to install the rpm, e.g.

rpm -Uvh --nodeps fp-UNIX-ms-4.3.2-1.i386.rpm
