Sophos Anti-Virus for Linux

Operating system

Ubuntu kernel 2.6.39

Cause

Sophos Anti-Virus for Linux version 7.x requires access to the System.map file.  On some Ubuntu kernels the System.map file is not world-readable, preventing the sophosav user from accessing it.

What to do

Workaround

  • Locate the System.map file for your kernel, usually located in /boot/System.map-<kernel>
  • Check the current permissions: ls -l /boot/System.map-<kernel>
  • If the System.map file is not world-readable, add this permission:  chmod o+r  /boot/System.map-<kernel>
  • Restart the Web GUI service: /etc/init.d/sav-web start
