I am interested in this project, but the dropbox URL gets 509ed. I'm primarily interested in using pup to boot from a USB drive and then run avast and avg to scan the local hard drive. I've got the bootable usb and got avast and avg installed and then came across your project while researching how to design my scanning script(s).

When I try to download, I get:
Error (509)
This account's public links are generating too much traffic and have been temporarily disabled!
Is there anywhere else I can get it? This is just what I was looking for from the sound of it.

DPUP5520 is on a work assignment traveling a lot in remote places
so maybe he may not have access to an internet cafe at the moment.
That could explain why he has not noticed that the link fails.

Sorry guys i've seen the issues with dropbox and i'm currently working on getting the issue resolved! Unfortunately due to the area i'm in and the slow internet connection that I have, I haven't been able to upload PupRescue anywhere else. As soon as I find a new place to upload it I will let it be known (btw it should be working again on Dropbox for the time being).

@ant2ne AVG isn't all that great on Linux I always recommend Avast, even F-Prot I see as being quite a bit better than AVG and they're both much lighter.

Here is an alternate download location for version 2.5 (thanks to smokey01 for providing the space)


Enjoy

DPUP5520. Would it be a good idea to provide a "working" Antivirus program that has the latest (at the time of your build) signatures at the time on your build so that there is NO need to go to the internet to use the Live media CD?

If you think this a good idea for the community, it may be an addition in your next RESCUE.

Here's a similar request

Hope this helps in its future.

The problem, and only problem with having the AV all ready to go on download is quite simply that a key is required for avast which you obviously would need to go online to get anyway (I'm keeping the browser issue in mind from the PM). So therefore, I think I will leave avast the way it is and people can take it or leave it (I personally prefer it to any of AV software for linux) and I will add in F-Prot in the next version since AVG is too big (and not all that great) and everything else either costs money or pretty much sucks (my own opinion) for linux. I am going to redo PupRescue again when I get time (and CDs) and I am also going to be redoing Puppy Crypt at the same time too so it will be slow going.
I am curious to get an opinion of whether I should keep lucid as the base since it's good for older and newer computers or should I switch over to Slacko and focus on computers built within the last 5 or 6 (or so I've heard) years.

At this time...

lupu-528.004 is my favorite Puppy...

And Avast4workstation-1.0.8 is my favorite [on-demand] anti-virus scanner.

Understand the AVAST requirement and you are clear about your concerns about other AV tools.

One that you did not mention which is a benefit is CLAM. I just used TRK which ships with CLAM operational (even though 6 months old), the operational version found and remove a nasty virus from a PC that one parishner had on his laptop.

Whether its the most liked or not, CLAM as a first sop has always worked for me. And this case is an example.

Its a thought for some who may download your distro and simply boot as a first-line of offense should the need arise.

As a note of my use, I NEVER connect any PC that has a suspected virus to ANY LAN. I totally understand that if the OS with the virus is NOT running, it SHOULD be of no consequence as long as an alternative OS is being booted, but, still, it has been better for me to NOT connect until I'm sure the suspected PC has gone thru some measure of cleanliness before proceeding.

If this is helpful info, "Run with it".

Here to help

I'm running Rescue Puppy now because I'm between hard drives at the moment (my BIOS so far won't pick up my new one), and I'm booting from a savefile on a 4 GB USB pendrive. It's not ideal but at least I still have a system I can use Smile

Thanks DPUP for a good effort with this,

Cheers,

CP .

I aim to please. I'm glad to say that I will be back home pretty soon and as soon as I do I will resume work on PupRescue and begin recompiling all the older apps that I maintain on here, unfortunately my connection here sucks so I haven't been able to do much (I'm on a text browser right now). Hope ya'll haven't forgotten about me!
