kernel failure on installation

Dear F-secure team,

 

I am trying to install version 11 of F-secure onto a Ubuntu 18.04.3 64-bit machine. On launching

 sudo ./f-secure-linux-security-10.20.358 

It launches and then I get:

 

Running /opt/f-secure/fsav/bin/fsav-compile-drivers

FSAV kernel driver failed to compile.
Please fix the errors printed above, then run as root:
/opt/f-secure/fsav/bin/fsav-compile-drivers
Without kernel drivers the realtime protection features will not work!
After drivers have been successfully compiled, restart daemons with command:
/etc/init.d/fsma stop ; /etc/init.d/fsma start

I'm not sure what the next steps should be?

 

Many thanks - apologies I am a relative newcomer to linux.

 

All the best

Re: kernel failure on installation

Hi Tac

 

Can you please check that the required packages for Linux Security are already installed. You could refer to the following community article for the detail information about the required packages.

https://community.f-secure.com/t5/Business-Suite/Pre-installation-checklist-for-F/ta-p/76128

 

For Ubuntu 18.04, the following needs to installed.

 

sudo apt-get install libc6-dev:i386 libpam-modules:i386 libstdc++6:i386 rpm zlib1g:i386

Re: kernel failure on installation

The command example and the redirfs errors you provided tells that you are using Linux Security 10.20 installer. LS 10.20 does not support Ubuntu 18. To install Linux Security 11.10 use its own installer.

Dear Sami, 

 

I have installed this through the University College London account - do you know if the university has a licence for the new version? 

 

Many thanks

Hi tac,

 

Sorry, I have no access to such information and disclosing it here might not be reasonable either.

Anyway, for LS11 you need a new license key that you should ask directly from the university in case they have a license. LS11 also has a trial period which you can use to try out the product.
