    i want to update clamav from version 0.95.2 to .3, but the debian lenny volatile repo seems not to get it.
    so i gave a first shot:

    wget http://www.clamav.net/download/sources/
    tar -xvzf clamav-0.95.3.tar.gz
    cd clamav-0.95
    export DEBFULLNAME='My Name'
    dh_make -n -s -e '[email protected]'
    vim debian/control    #modify description
    cp /etc/init.d/clamav-daemon debian/clamav.clamav-daemon.init
    cp /etc/init.d/clamav-freshclam debian/clamav.clamav-freshclam.init
    vim debian/rules
    #replace '# dh_installinit' with:
      dh_installinit --name=clamav-daemon
      dh_installinit --name=clamav-freshclam
    #create .deb by running:
    debian/rules binary
    it creates me a beautiful .deb package

    now: whats my next step?
    i installed clamav and all the clamav-<...> packages with apt-get

    how do i remove/install/replace them with my own package?

    I recommend that you do not install clamav manually. Your Clamav signatures are still up to date when you use 0.95.2. You should wait until debian volatile updates to 0.95.3.
