Default Updating clamav on Fedora 8

Hi,

I have followed the guide [Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL] for some time ago, and now I would like to update Clamav, but I cannot find any rpm for version 0.93.x for Fedora 8.

I have the following clamav packages installed at the moment:

clamav-server-sysv-0.92.1-2.fc8
clamav-data-0.92.1-2.fc8
clamav-filesystem-0.92.1-2.fc8
clamav-0.92.1-2.fc8
clamav-update-0.92.1-2.fc8
clamav-lib-0.92.1-2.fc8
clamav-server-0.92.1-2.fc8

I would like to solve my problem by installing clamav from source, but I am not sure if my mail server will break, if I do that. Can I just remove all clamav packages installed and run a default build of clamav or do I need to make some changes to the configuration to get it to run with my server?

Thanks,

Rasmus

To be honest, I'd wait until rpm packages for 0.93 are released...

Hi Frosig

I am using clamav 0.93.1 with qmail. You can uninstal clamav using rpm -e and install using the source package. you can get it from www.clamav.net

The main thing you have to take care is before uninstalling remember to stop clamav service.

then uninstall using rpm -e command.

download clamav to /usr/local/
unzip it

compile it. you should get the config file at /usr/local/etc//clamd.conf

(it depends on where u set it to. mine is like this)

vi /usr/local/etc/clamd.conf

"Example" - should already be commented out. However, if it is not, make sure that it is commented out (#)
"LogFile" - should be set to /var/log/clamav/clamd.log
"LogTime" - should be uncommmented.
"LogSyslog" - should be uncommented.
"User" - should be set to qscand
"ScanMail" - should be uncommented.

Now create the qscand user that ClamAV will run as. This user is really for qmail-scanner, which will be installed on the next step, but we'll go ahead and create it now so that we can start the ClamAV daemon...

useradd -c "Qmail-Scanner Account" -s /bin/false qscand

Alright, now start Clamd...

/usr/local/sbin/clamd stop

/usr/local/sbin/clamd start



Update ur virus defenitions by running

/usr/bin/freshclam -l /var/log/clamav/clam-update.log


Looking forward to hear from you

Thanks and regards
Nidhin Tomson
