I'm using uvscan from McAfee (version w/ enjine 3). It works OK and the linux
version costs 200$. Pay attention to the version, after paying (last sept) I
downloaded a version that was 3 years old and it took me about 1 week to have
them tell me where I could find the right one!...

It uses just the same .dat files as win versions.

Good luck
