Hello,

Symantec AntiVirus for Linux 1.0 Maintenance Release 14 provides support to RHEL 5x and 6x.

Other than the Article: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH101598 you may check this Article below:

SAV for Linux does not run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH138546

It states, "Kernel support for RHEL 6.0 and RHEL 6.1 are included in SAV for Linux 1.0 MR 11".

In other words, SAV Linux MR14 surely supports RHEL 5x and 6x.

Hope that helps!!

Hi Shaizad

I believe you should be fine with SAVFL MR14 (the latest release).  If for any reason the auto-protect modules do not load automatically, you can compile your own:
