    Hi all,

    I've just downloaded a copy of NOD32 x86_64 Linux, and when I tried to run the installer I got an error message saying:

    I did a little digging around, and I found that on my system the file(s) it's looking for are actually located under /usr/lib32/gconv/UTF-16.so

    A quick symlink fixed that up and it then installed / ran without any problems.

    Just a heads up! :)

    FWIW I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 x64.

    How? I managed to do that on 32-bit Ubuntu, it was:
    Code:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/gconv/ /usr/lib/gconv
    Now I have 64-bit Ubuntu 11.04, on different computer.
    What is the codeo_O

    Edit:
    http://search.eset.com/esetkb/index?page=content&id=SOLN2733

    This is not working for me, I get: ln: target `/usr/lib/gconv/UTF-16.so' is not a directory

    PLEASE HELP!!!

    Hi DuSh4n,

    you need to make the directory /usr/lib/gconv

    and after this you could run the command from the SOLN2733.

    Please don't forget the backticks (`) - without this the command doesn't work.

    Pleas help! I am a Linux newbie and I have tried all of the commands/solutions that I can find! Even the ESET solution2733 isn't working for me.

    When I make the directory /usr/lib/gconv by typing "sudo mkdir /usr/lib/gconv"
    I get a message that says the directory already exists

    and when I type "sudo ln –s `sudo find / | grep UTF-16.so` /usr/lib/gconv/UTF-16.so"
    I get a message that says the file already exists.

    Every time I run the installation, I get the "Please install the following files or packages: /usr/lib/gconv/UTF-16.so" error message.

    What am I doing wrong? And what do I do?

    I read in Ubuntu forums that an antivirus under Linux is useless for a normal user. Though it may be usefull for servers and big structures.

    Hello,

    It depends quite a bit on what the user is doing. Linux platforms are often desired by botherders not for infecting per se but for intermediate hosting of things like C&C servers since Linux systems tend to be very stable, have good uptime and handle large amounts of network traffic well.

    Another thing to keep in mind is that any system can be made more secure or less secure than its default configuration.

    But, very generally speaking, the overall risk for Linux-based systems is much lower.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
