I am trying to install the latest Sophos.
I am using the same method I have used for a few years and not had problems until this time.
(I know MailScanner needs updating as it's a year or so old - it's on a long list of jobs to do!)
I have downloaded the linux.intel.libc6.tar.Z file to /tmp and run /usr/sbin/Sophos.install
I get the following out put.
[root at server tmp]# /usr/sbin/Sophos.install
If you are trying to install Sophos version 5,
then please expand the tar file with a command like
tar xzf sav-linux-5-i386.tgz
Then run me again!
Press return to continue, or Ctrl-C to escape.

It is the right version according to the note I have done on previous updates - I tried the glibc version to check and that failed with the same error!
Any Pointers on this?
I'll have a trawl on the web now but thought someone might be able to point me directly to the correction of problem.
