    Try this:
    sh ./path/to/install-dgav
    the stuff i clipped out was previous commands i tried.

    edit - as did the command i posted on the last page.
    ok so if i put it in the root it should work?

    Because it isn't relative, then if you havn't untarred to '/' then it will get rather confused.

    Check everything is where it should be:
    ls -l /var/smoothwall/mods/filtering/dgav/
    Im lost abit now

    put the dgav .tgz file into /tmp & extract it with the command given on the DGAV install instructions page, then type 'cd /', press enter (which should take you to '/'), then run '/tmp/install-dgav' which should install it for you.

    When you originally extracted everything the '-C /' flag should cause everything to be extracted from a base location of '/'. This is the very top of your filesystems tree.

    Your '/tmp/install-dgav' file from the archive is actually a symbolic link. It says "I'm not here, look over THERE"
    In this case, the "THERE" is '/var/smoothwall/mods/filtering/dgav/install.pl'

    If the archive was extracted correctly, this file should be present and correct. You should be able to run it directly like so:

    Code:
    perl /var/smoothwall/mods/filtering/dgav/install.pl
    If the file is not found at this point, then either the archive was damaged or it wasn't extracted into the root '/' directory.

    In which case it probably hasn't been extracted correctly as it should create the needed directories.

    I'd redownload the DGAV archive, just to rule out any possibility of a corrupt archive

    I would do what computer_expert suggested in post #32 and start from the beginning.
    Once the archive is extracted in the right place, the install should work as planned.

    EDIT: Yes there may be some leftover files from the archive, if you had extracted it in your home directory for example. Any junk in your /tmp will be purged at some point in the future.

    delete the dgav .tgz file from '/tmp', then redownload it (& copy it across to the smoothie's /tmp folder)

    now log into the smoothie via putty (or similar) and type 'tar -zxvf /tmp/DGAV-SW3-2.8.0.6-6.4.4.2-i686-b012.tgz -C /' to extract it.

    then run '/tmp/install-dgav' to install it



    Here is the output of a successful installation of dgav:

    No.

    It should be a folder on the top level of the filesystem (eg. /tmp = C:\tmp for windows machines)

    Right i am doing a new clean install its only on a test VM anyway.

    Last time i had to create the tmp directory. Should this need to be done or was i doing something stupid?

    Thanks

    /tmp should already exist.

    I checked on a commercial smoothie and it isn't noexec, so it probalby isnt on express either - so thats not your problem. But if you have to make it, something is badly up. Be sure you're in / to begin with

    Are you sure that you are looking at the root of the drive?

    use PuTTY to SSH into the box and type:
    Code:
    cd /
    ls -l
    That should give you a pretty directory listing of the disk's root... containing /tmp

    Personally, I would then use PSCP to transfer your file directly to /tmp...
    Code:
    c:\path\to\putty\pscp.exe -P 222 c:\path\to\download\blah.tgz root@smoothieIP:/tmp/
