Question ClamAV is outdated.


Okay, so my next mission is to get ClamAV updated and running.

Now... I know the basics, so I ran:

Quote:
emerge clamav
It did everything, then eventually, I restarted clamav and then I get told this:
Quote:
/etc/init.d/clamd restart
* Stopping clamd ... [ ok ]
* Stopping freshclam ... [ ok ]
* Starting clamd ...
LibClamAV Warning: ***********************************************************
LibClamAV Warning: *** This version of the ClamAV engine is outdated. ***
LibClamAV Warning: *** DON'T PANIC! Read http://www.clamav.net/support/faq ***
LibClamAV Warning: ***************************************************** [ ok ]
* Starting freshclam ... [ ok ]
Now, when I look at the log file, it says this:

Quote:

I was under the impression, running emerge clamav would install the latest version but it's not, and yet, I get the OUTDATED! error.

Help with this, thanks.

There is a newer ebuild available in the portage tree:

Code:
# emerge -av =app-antivirus/clamav-0.96
But it is probably masked or missing keyword since it did not install with emerge clamav. This one may yield better results doing the update.

Hi sploot;

I typed:

Quote:
emerge -av =app-antivirus/clamav-0.96
And...

Quote:
These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "=app-antivirus/clamav-0.96".

Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge -av =app-antivirus/clamav-0.06
you might need to update your portage tree.

Okay, so I ran:

Quote:
emerge --sync
and ultimately ended up with this:

Quote:
>>> Starting retry 3 of 3 with rsync://172.0.23.4/gentoo-portage
>>> Checking server timestamp ...
timed out
rsync error: received SIGINT, SIGTERM, or SIGHUP (code 20) at rsync.c(544) [receiver=3.0.6]
>>> Exceeded PORTAGE_RSYNC_RETRIES: 3
So, before I can further, I might need to fix this problem... do I have a old 'portage' setup ? How do I fix it?

Thanks!

Can you connect to the internet on this machine? or are you posting from a different setup? It seems that emerge is failing to access the server to update, but I'm not sure what would cause that to fail while you can still get to LQ.

Hi sploot;

I can ping 8.8.8.8 from the box.
I can also ping 196.25.1.1 from the local and...
I can also ping www.linuxquestions.org

Could it maybe be my shorewall setup?
My linux box also functions as my 'glorified' router (splitting traffic etc)

Thanks for this;

I've put this in the make.conf file and saved it with :wq
I ran it.
Yeap, you were right sploot, it was slow but at least it worked - took nothing short of forever! hahaha.

Afterwards, I ran the command:

Quote:
emerge -av =app-antivirus/clamav-0.96
It worked.

Update!

Okay, so, It finished EVENTUALLY downloading 38MB and installing and then I did:

Quote:
/etc/init.d/clamd start
* Starting clamd ... [ ok ]
* Starting freshclam ... [ ok ]
* Virus databases are already up to date.
Thanks for the help guys, but I have 1 more question, how do I make sure that when the server reboots, it starts clamav as default?
