The "pls don't ignore this post" is there because I've noticed that this type of request involving subtleties with apt-get libs and .debs sometimes tends to get ignored.
I've got v close to running f-prot antiviral on dsl (a deb package, free for personal use) but am stuck at an installation problem with one lib.
1. Registered and Downloaded fs-prot-ws.deb from their website http://www.f-prot.com/download/home_user/download_fplinux.html
trying dpkg -i on this yields the requirement for the dependencies:
libwww-perl and libnet-perl.( Installing the perl-containing gtk2.dsl doesn't help but I didn't really expect it to).
2. Pointing /etc/apt/sources.list at:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing main
and typing apt-get install libwww-perl
gives a list of dependencies and suggests that I type & agree to apt-get -f install, which I did.
3. This last step corrects the dependencies, upgrades perl-base and installs a lot of libs, including the two needed in 1 above, and also tries to install fs-prot-ws and libnet-perl.
This last file is the only problem.
Setting up libnet-perl (1.19-1) ...
Couldn't open configuration file!
dpkg: error processing libnet-perl (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 30
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: subprocess /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
Having guessed which repository contains the correct libs etc it would be nice to get this running and useful info for other users?
Any help out there would be appreciated.
