Supported distributions

Endpoint Protection supports the following operating systems:

  • Red Hat Enterprise (64-bit), version 6.0 or later
  • Debian Squeeze (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • Ubuntu (32-bit and 64-bit), version 12 or later

  • CentOS 6.x and later

Preinstallation requirements

The system must meet the following requirements for the product to work correctly:

  • The ?lsb_release? utility must be installed (on RedHat and Debian).

    This utility is used to determine the Linux distribution the installer is running on.
    • On Debian, download and install the following package:

    • On RedHat, download and install the following package:

  • PavSL protection dependencies (all distributions).
    The PavSL protection requires the installation of the following libraries to work properly:
    • (HTTP client/server library for GNOME)
    • libgthread-2.0
    • (MCrypt - encryption functions)
    • (zlib compression and decompression library)

      Make sure the /opt/PCOPAgent/PCOPScheduler/pavsl-bin/ directory contains all the ?PavSL? dependencies:

      # ldd

      On SUSE/OpenSUSE x64, use the following workaroundif there are any issues:
        • Install ligsoup-2_4-1-32bit (if it is not already installed). For example:

          # zypper install libsoup-2_4-1-32bit
        • Install libgthread-2_0-0-32bit (if it is not already installed). For example:

          # zypper install libgthread-2_0-0-32bit
        • Uninstall libmcrypt and mcrypt:

          # zypper rm libmcrypt
          # zypper rm mcrypt
        • Install ?libmcrypt-2.5.8-109.1.2.i586.rpm?. Download and install it, if it is not already installed.

On Ubuntu x64, run the following commands to install the required dependencies for the service to to work properly:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-0:i386
sudo apt-get install libsoup2.4-1:i386
sudo apt-get install libmcrypt4:i386
sudo apt-get install libgssapi-krb5-2:i386

  • AT/CRON must be properly installed and enabled (in all distributions):

    Make sure the AT and CRON services are properly installed and enabled in the system services.

    Workaround for the ?ATD? service (on SUSE and openSUSE)

    Follow the steps below if the "ATD" service doesn?t start automatically on openSUSE:
    1. Edit the file /etc/sysconfig/atd

      ATD_LOADAVG = "0.8"
    2. Edit the file /lib/systemd/system/atd.service as follows:

      # cat /lib/systemd/system/atd.service

      Description=Execution Queue Daemon

      ExecStart=/usr/sbin/atd -b ${ATD_BATCH_INTERVAL} -l ${ATD_LOADAVG}

    3. Reload the daemon, start it, and check the service status:

      # chkconfig --add atd
      # systemctl --system daemon-reload
      # systemctl enable atd.service
      # systemctl start atd.service
      # systemctl status atd.service

      atd.service - Execution Queue Daemon
      Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/atd.service; disabled)
      Active: active (running) since Fri, 05 Oct 2012 12:14:52 -0500; 1s ago
      Process: 20851 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/atd -b ${ATD_BATCH_INTERVAL} -l ${ATD_LOADAVG} (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)
      Main PID: 20852 (atd)
      CGroup: name=systemd:/system/atd.service
      |_ 20852 /usr/sbin/atd -b 60 -l 0.8
    4. Reboot the computer so that it takes it into account from then on:

      # reboot
    5. After the computer finishes booting, check the service status:

      # systemctl status atd.service
  • To run the proxy server configuration script, the whiptail command must be available. On SUSE, this command is included in the newt package. Run the following command to install it:

    # zipper install newt
