Unable to install Sophos on my Oracle Linux 8 system.

I am new to Sophos, but I have successfully in stalled Sophos on other systems with no issues. On this one system when I run the SophosInstall.sh script I get the following error: 

# ./SophosInstall.sh
Installing Sophos Anti-Virus for Linux with arguments: []
Downloading medium installer
installer/bin64/installer: error while loading shared libraries: libSUL.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Failed to download the medium installer! (Error code = 127)

I am running this from root, the /tmp dir does not have noexec. Not sure what else to check. Thanks for the assist.

  • I can confirm my RHEL9 installations with 800-171 security hardening also output the same "libSUL.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" message and Error code 127... 

    The RHEL hardening stigs are hitting this sh script from two sides
    1. noexec /tmp 
    2. fapolicyd

    # mkdir -p /opt/sophos_tmp && chmod 777 /opt/sophos_tmp
    # export TMPDIR=/opt/sophos_tmp/ && ./SophosSetup.sh

    I'm not sure what you're going to do here to address this.


    Anyway, good luck!
