Dear Kinta - I have been successfully using your unofficial patch up to and including Ubuntu 16.04 kernel 4.4.0-43 even though the patch was not recommended to go that far.
However, sadly, it fails with Ubuntu 16.10 kernel 4.8.0-22 - even after running your fix_rebuild_driver.sh script (which I had not needed to use before)
Is this the end of the road for CAV Linux? Or may we expect an updated patch some time?
I must say I have been extremely grateful to you for the past 2-3 years!

I ran into the same problem as I upgraded one of my system to 16.10.  I looked into the kernel 4.8 and found there was changes made that caused the compilation failed.  I managed to make a patch on the source and compiled well on kernel 4.8.  Do you want to test it before I can put it on public...

Yup - many thanks Charlie. I'll try it first on my usb drive 16.10 install and report back...

I can report that Charlie's driver.tar replacement does indeed work with Ubuntu 16.10 using kernel 4.8.0-28. Whether, like the Kinta solution, it will continue to work with later kernels (till it stopped working with the latest ones, that is) remains to be seen.
That means that if you install Comodo Antivirus for Linux and you do gksudo nautilus (or Thunar, or whatever you are using) to navigate to /opt/COMODO/ and then replace the driver,tar which came with Comodo with Charlie's driver.tar instead and then run sudo /opt/COMODO/[SPACE]post_setup.sh and accept the license agreement (tedious scrolling) Comodo should run successfully. However, as with Kinta's solution, you'll probably need to keep replacing it with itself every time there is a Linux kernel upgrade to your system.
But before all that palaver, in order to install Comodo nowadays you also need first to install libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o which is no longer in the official repositories as it's been replaced by later versions - so you'll need to Google it and download it from somewhere else in order to install it.
By the way I can confirm that to be on the safe side I installed Charlie's solution on my full install of Ubuntu 16.10 on my usb stick, then, after installation, ran ESET antivirus for Linux on it an it reported no malware. So Charlie's solution appears to be safe - though there are no guarantees in life!
Phew...
Thanks Charlie - go public.... I think.

[[See Reply#43 an updated version of driver.tar for kernel 4.9 and after...]]

Here is the driver for kernel 4.4 and up to 4.8...

Tested on kernel 4.4, 4.7 and 4.8.

1) unzip driver.zip.
2) copy driver.tar to /opt/COMODO.

Read KINTA-JAPAN post for compiling the driver.

The size of driver.tar is less than that of KINTA-JAPAN version because I deleted the dazuko directory because it does nothing to the compilation.  The changes made to the driver source are shown in the three diff files.

I used the CAVL for several years, it is a good anti-virus with GUI interface.  Thanks to the work been done by COMODO team and KINTA-JAPAN.  I am really appreciated...

Charlie

CORRECTION!!
There should be no [SPACE] in sudo /opt/COMODO/[SPACE]post_setup.sh ie should be sudo /opt/COMODO/post_setup.sh
Apologies

Thanks Charlie!  :-TU

I hope a revised CAVL will be released....

Hi charlie_xstar
While I have been delighted with your patch on Ubuntu 16.10 and its various kernels up till now, I'm sorry to report that is fails in Fedora 25 using kernel 4.8.6-300.fc25.x86_64 which I have recently been trying out. The error message are:
make: *** No rule to make target 'all'.  Stop.
make: *** No rule to make target 'install'.  Stop.
modprobe: FATAL: Module redirfs not found in directory /lib/modules/4.8.6-300.fc25.x86_64
RedirFS kernel modules installation failed

I'm afraild I don't have the faintest idea what those messages mean... But I guess you will know.
I note that the original installer for Comodo for Linux AV was claimed to be originally an .rpm file converted via Alien to a .deb file. The version of CAV I downloaded for installation into Fedora 25 was in its original .rpm format, which is offered on the Comodo web site. You say you tested your patch up to and including kernel 4.8, but I'm wondering if the stuff you said you left out was relevant to the .rpm version, even if redundant in the .deb version? Dunno... all this stuff is well above my paygrade...
Anyway, many thanks again for your efforts so far!

Hi to charlie_xstar and kinta-japan,

Unfortunately on Opensuse Leap 42.1 & 42.2, the gui shows that services are not started, forcing the user to execute CAV diagnostics on every log in / reboot...

After performing the CAV diagnosis, the marks on the gui go green..

I use kubuntu and the format is .deb...  So I don't know what wrong with your compilation.  My kernel version of 64-bit Kubuntu is 4.8.0-37-generic #39-Ubuntu SMP; it still works fine for me.

Yes, agreed Charlie, thanks to your efforts.
It is still working on Kernel 4.8.0-37 in Ubuntu (and doubtless other Debian derivatives) - but not working in Fedora 25 (now with kernel 4.9.9 - upgraded since my last post...).
This is certainly not critical for me since I'm still using Ubuntu as my main distro. Just reporting the Fedora - .rpm - issue in case you might be interested.

P.S. See Reply#43 for kernel 4.9 and after...

Changes have been made in Kernel 4.9 and after...

Tested on Kubuntu 17.04 (64-bit) with kernel 4.10...  hopefully it should also work on previous versions as well.

Updated version of driver.tar is attached here...

1) unzip driver.zip.
2) put driver.tar in /opt/COMODO
3) run post_setup.sh as root.
