Using dpkg and apt-get with BitDefender Rescue CD

The dpkg utility can be used to add additional software once you have booted a system with a BitDefender Rescue CD, but first you need to create a few directories and files.
root@Knoppix:~# mkdir /var/lib/dpkg
root@Knoppix:~# mkdir /var/lib/dpkg/info
root@Knoppix:~# mkdir /var/lib/dpkg/updates
root@Knoppix:~# touch /var/lib/dpkg/status
root@Knoppix:~# touch /var/lib/dpkg/available

Alternatively, you can use the apt-get utility to download and install the packages you wish to use - see Using apt-get with BitDefender Rescue CD

During the boot process, the virus definitions will be updated, if the system has an Internet connection. If the software has a problem updating the definitions it will hang for awhile at the stage where it tries to update the virus definitions and then you will see the message "Trying to update your network ?" When the BitDefender Rescue CD completes booting, you will have a Graphical User Interface (GUI). A BitDefender AntiVirus Scanner for Unices program will start automatically and start scanning the hard drive in the system.

By default, all partitions detected on the hard drive will be scanned. When the scan completes, you'll have to choose what actions to take on the infected file(s). You can choose one action for all files or select an action for each item.

If you right-click somewhere on the desktop, you will see a list of applications on the CD. You can get a terminal window by selecting Terminal or Terminal (as root) by selecting from the menu that appears when you right-click on the desktop. Don't pick Exit from this menu, until you are ready to shut down the system. I.e., wait until the scan has completed and you've chosen what to do with any infected files detected
