ESET not starting on Ubuntu 22.04

Recommended Posts

-> % journalctl -xe | grep eset
RULPF48Z3SQ dbus-daemon[1892]: [session uid=1000 pid=1892] Activating service name='eset.eea' requested by ':1.28' (uid=1000 pid=2367 comm="/usr/bin/gnome-shell " label="unconfined")
RULPF48Z3SQ dbus-daemon[1892]: [session uid=1000 pid=1892] Activated service 'eset.eea' failed: Process eset.eea exited with status 1

It stopped working on 11.01.2024. And we have 4 more Ubuntu laptops with the same problem.

Eset version is

Gnome-shell verison is 42.9

Does anyone has the same problem? Do you ave any solutions?

most probably you are experiencing issue with missing compiler. Ubuntu latest released kernel was compiled with gcc-12, but this version isn't by default installed there and it results into issue during our kernel modules compilation. 

Please try to install gcc-12 package (sudo apt install gcc-12) and start again our service.

Thank you, Kurco. You're lightning fast.

This helped.

this is the command order and installation file:

sudo apt install gcc-12

sudo apt-get remove eea

Then download the installer from eset and installed the AV with:

sudo sh ./eeau.x86_64.bin

After the reinstall activation was off.

There was no need to remove (during remove products are always deactivated) and install eea again. After installation of gcc-12, it is enough to try again starting our service sudo systemctl start eea.

I enrolled about 30 Ubuntu users today and about 6 of them is working properly. Should I install those gcc-12 via policy right after agent deployment ? Or what is the best practice in this problem ?
