I did savscan / and got:
Could not open /home/ludo/.googleearth/instance-running-lock
Could not open /var/run/user/1000/gvfs
What does this mean?
I mean, I did it as root of course...
(scan was done without an internet browser opened)
Just in case this is an issue on the disk can you run a disk check? What are the permissions for these files? If you exclude them from the savscan using -exclude (see /opt/sophos-av/bin/savscan --help ?
regarding the gvfs file I found the following in an Ubuntu forum which seems to explain this:
"In Hardy, when a user has a gnome session running, the directory ~/.gvfs is a mountpoint for some sort of filesystem involving fuse. Since it is a mountpoint, nothing is actually stored on disk under ~/.gvfs in the filesystem you are backing up, so you can exclude it with some filter rule like "exclude /*/.gvfs". It will be recreated if needed, in my experience.This is a common problem with fuse-mounted files systems I think: not even root can access them, unless a configuration setting is changed somewhere for the mount. rsync throws up that error even if given the --one-file-system option (so it doesn't descend past the mountpoint)."
There are files in home directories that root can not open: they are mounted gvfs filesystems that do not give root access to the files.
