no clamd daemon - PLEASE HELP
I've installed via yum clamav on fc5 and I got everything besides clamd. I have clamd manual but no daemon. I have clamd in /usr/sbin but when I try to run it from there - instead of "service clamd start" - it tells me clamd.conf does not exist. when I run "service clamd start" it says clamd not recongnized...

please help...

Thank you
Great software! Easy to use. A daemon, some command line tools, two configuration files. Excellent documentation (incl. man pages).

The classic UNIX way: small and beautiful.

And it works and is really fast. :)

There are two official mirrors: clamav.essentkabel.com (updated automatically from elektrapro) and clamav.ozforces.com (updated manually). The newest freshclam (http://clamav.elektrapro.com/snapshot) or http://clamav.ozforces.com/clamav-20030403.tar.gz switches to the mirror automatically.

What's wrong with the main site?
Clamav users like me are having problems to update the virus database with freshclam.
Is there a way to set up freshclam with a mirror?
How can we check the validity of a mirror?

Why do you think so ? If you have problems accessing the main site you should setup freshclam to use the clamav.ozforces.com mirror for database updates.
