System recommendations
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 Filesystem Monitor:

The F-PROT Filesystem Monitor (fpmon) requires Dazuko to be installed and inserted into the kernel. See this page for more details.

System requirements for F-PROT Antivirus Mail Scanner:

F-PROT Antivirus Mail Scanner (scan-mail.pl) 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
