This issue has been solved. See solution.

I installed Ubuntu 12.10, 64 bit, US English on my computer. It has a kernel version of

Moreover I installed SAV for Linux 1.0.14-13 on it.


How is it that CLI (client interface) does not load? Is it possible to enable it? If yes, how do I go about doing it?

P.S.: The AutoProtect module does not load and according to one of Symantec's employees, I need to compile my own AutoProtect kernel modules for my OS.
