Manjaro Linux ESET NOD-32 GUI wont iopen

Recommended Posts

My first post. I have been using ESET NOD-32  on linux for  quite some time and this is the first problem I have experienced.

  Host: orphaned-inode Kernel: 4.14.34-1-MANJARO x86_64 bits: 64 
  compiler: gcc v: 7.3.1 Desktop: Xfce 4.12.4 (Gtk 2.24.31)

  OpenGL: renderer: GeForce GT 730/PCIe/SSE2 v: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 390.48 
  direct render: Yes 

is the system.  Using htop I can see the esets_daemon running. Looking at /var/log/esets I see entries for sched.dat, stats.inet, stats.mail, stats.mailpart, stats.onaccess,stats.ondemand,and status.dat all from today as well as eventlog.dat. When I try to open the GUI a window flashes briefly and disappears. Additionally the icon has disappeared from the launcher bar. I tried using the repair function in the executable  and it failed to remedy the problem after a reboot.

I have also run rkhunter and tiger and dont see anything alarming. Any help or guidance would be appreciated. I generally run  a full system scan  2-3 times per week.

Regards and thanks.


Edit--later. Re downloaded and installed another copy from Esets,  same result with a fresh install file.

Hello expat42451

It is very easy and intuitive. I make it work in few minutes, here you can find the steps and screenshots.

To use the multilib repository, uncomment the [multilib] section in /etc/pacman.conf (Please be sure to uncomment both lines):

edit /etc/pacman.conf

Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Install glibc to run  32 bit packages:

pacman -S lib32-glibc

Install cpio package

pacman -S cpio

 First many thanks for the time and interest  you devoted to your  post, it is very appreciated.

In /etc/pacman.conf multilab is already uncommented. cpio is already installed. When I sudo pacman -S lib-glibc I have  error:target not found. After this I ran Yaourt and attempted to "find"glib-c and it returned nothing so I am at a bit of a loss here.


Many thanks for your interest and kind assistance.

Got lib32- glibc installed. Reinstalled Eset and rebooted. Same result. No  AV window at reboot, refused to start the GUI at all. Here is the core dump.

 Process 1073 (esets_gui) of user 1000 dumped core.

Hello @expat42451 ,

it seems that the GUI is crashing on your system.

We would need the coredump and stack trace (from the same crash) to look into it.

To capture the stack trace:

1. Stop esets service

2.run command ulimit -c unlimited
to enable complete dumps

3. Please run the esets_daemon with the strace parameter
"strace -ffo esets_daemon.txt -s 256 /opt/eset/esets/sbin/esets_daemon"

4. Please run the esets_gui with the strace parameter
"strace -ffo esets_gui.txt -s 256 /opt/eset/esets/bin/esets_gui"

5. Wait till issue occurs again and take all esets_daemon.txt*, esets_gui.txt*, and /tmp/bt.* files 

6. Download the info_get  script from http://ftp.nod.sk/~jedovnicky/info_get.command.1.37.zip run it and take the output. 

7. Pack and upload all the outputs to a safe location and send me a private message with a reference to this topic.

Regards, P.R.

Hi Peter

Many thanks for your and JJ's kind assistance.  I bought the program  a while ago and it was excellent.  However plans here are changing, I have uninstalled it and the computer it was used on is going away in the next week or so.  I run both OSX and the same Manjaro  distro on my laptop dual boot as I do  on the  desktop  that had NOD32 on it. However I am preparing for a move and dont have the time to address this right now.  After a few things here setle down I may possibly attempt an install on my laptop and to readdress it then.   NOD32 has been running in a production environment on Manjaro and has until this problem, been excellent. 


Again many thanks  for your kindness and willingness to help. I am only sorry I do not have the time to assist you in resolving this problem.

Hello @expat42451,

you are welcome, @J.J. was assisting you, personally I have minimal experience with Linux magic :-(

Not an issue it seems to work in our environment so it won't be a general issue with Manjaro and our product.

Thank you for your positive feedback and I hope everything will go as expected with your moving.

Regards, P.R.
