How do I install F-Secure Security Platfor 9.10 on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS?

How do I install F-Secure Security Platfor 9.10 on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS?

I'm installing F-Secure AV as part of a new installation of Lsoft LISTSERV software on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.  Following Lsoft documentation and the F-Secure release notes I unpack the tarball and run "./f-secure-linux-security-9.10.886 --command-line-only" with the following output:

 

: s64 370#; ./f-secure-linux-security-9.10.886 --command-line-only
F-Secure Linux Security installation

ERROR: rpm not found.

ERROR: No "rpm" command found.


RPM package manager software is required to install F-Secure Linux Security
Uninstallation of f-secure-security-platform-2.50.11303-1 failed. See /opt/f-secure/fsav/install.log for details.
Uninstallation of f-secure-automatic-update-agent-8.26.5741-1 failed. See /opt/f-secure/fsav/install.log for details.
Failed to run setup script.

 

 

Did I download the wrong installation package?  Do I have to abandon my Ubuntu server and start all over with an RPM-based distribution (lots of work wasted)? Willing to accept a friendly tap with a clue-stick.  Thanks,

Stand by, I overlooked the link to this page in the release notes first time through

 

http://community.f-secure.com/t5/End-point-Security/Pre-installation-checklist-for-F-Secure-Linux-Se...

 

Where I found the following:

 

Ubuntu 8.04 Server, Ubuntu 10.04, Ubuntu 10.10:

sudo apt-get install rpm libc6-dev patch linux-libc-dev make gcc

 

Nevermind....
