Custom Installation

Unpacking of installation file

To start custom installation, unpack the installation file <file_name>.run without starting product installation. For that, use --noexec command-line parameter:

# ./<file_name>.run --noexec

After the command execution, <file_name> subdirectory appears in the current directory.

Moreover, you can use the following command-line parameters with the installation file:

--keep - create <file_name> directory containing setup files, in the current directory (not in /tmp), and do not delete it after completion of installation.

--target <path_to_dir> - create <file_name> directory containing setup files, in the specified directory. Note that this directory will automatically be deleted after completion of installation, if you do not specify also the --keep or --noexec command-line parameter.

To see full list of available command-line parameters allowed for the installation file, execute the command

$ ./<file_name>.run --help

Custom installation of components

The created subdirectory is an installation directory that contains auxiliary files and all component packages included in Dr.Web for Linux. Each <component_name> component package contains two files: <component_name>.install and <component_name>.remove. These files are command scripts. The first script is used for package installation and the second script performs package removal. Names of all packages containing Dr.Web for Linux components start with "drweb" prefix.

To install a certain component, run the appropriate installation file in the console (or console emulator, which is a terminal for graphics mode).

To run an installation script for any component, administrative (root) privileges are required. To gain root privileges, you can use either the su command to switch to another user or the sudo command to perform an action as a different user.

When installing any of the product components, dependencies are supported; that is, if component installation requires other components, they are checked to be present in the system and, if not, they are installed automatically.

If it is necessary to start the full product installation, launch the installation script from the extracted directory. For that, use the following command:

$ ./
