Problems compiling pyclamav.


Hello all,

I am trying to install clam av and then get it integrate it with squid. One way is to install dansguardian-av. But this is built on old dans version. So the other option that I have is to install pyclamav and SCAVR ( squid clam av redirector ) and use.

Downloaded pyclamav and extracted it and now trying to compile it.

Running this command

python setup.py build
and getting the error:

Code:

Any ideas?

Did you check that the setup.py script

I once installed Clamav on a Ubuntu 7.10 directly from Synaptic, kubuntu must have it in their repositories.
I see that you are using a pyton script.
Did you check that the setup.py script is using the correct path for your system? also, do you change the permissions of the script?

http://xael.org/norman/python/pyclamav/
QUOTE : "Due to removal of cl_scanbuff in libclamav, pyclamav.scanthis()
has to be removed. You are now strongly encouraged to use pyClamd ! "

pyClamd → http://xael.org/norman/python/pyclamd/
> > pyclamd.py
http://xael.org/norman/python/pyclamd/pyclamd.py

.. I have no idea how well it works .. just referring the text ..
..... ..

But then again, pyclamd is in the repo : python-pyclamd

Sorry guys. I am not using Ubuntu for my squid purposes. This is just my desktop. Server is running CentOS5.4 Final.

@knudfl: Will give that a try.

Downloaded the pyclamd and copied as said. I am using with squid clam av redirector program which is also written in python.
have changed SquidClamAVRedirector.py to reflect the changes for the use of pyclamd instead of pyclamav.
I am running it as

/usr/local/bin/SquidClamAVReidrector.py -c /etc/squid/SquidClamAVRedirector.conf to test. I just need to know if it should end or not or should it give some output.
For me it is just there and cursor is blinking forever. And I have to end it with Ctrl+D.
Is it what I need to do?

I am not trying to put you on wrong track. Why would I do that. Its me who needs help.
I forgot to mention the OS of the server I am working on in the first post and did not realize that so just gave it in the next post. But then that is very much a relevant information, is not it?

Any how I got the diff but that does not work. That patch is not working.
This is the error while I try to patch

Quote:
patch < python-clamav_0.4.1-1ubuntu2.diff
can't find file to patch at input line 3
Perhaps you should have used the -p or --strip option?

Ok I got it running. I was running the patch command from the wrong location. But still I do not find it working.
/usr/local/bin/SquidClamAVReidrector.py -c /etc/squid/SquidClamAVRedirector.conf
The command just does not throw any output and cursor keeps blinking.
I am trying this for the first time and do not know if there should be any output or not.
But if I add this line to the squid, I lose all the internet.

FWIW, when I was using Squid with Clamav I don't recall needing to bind it with any Python glue? I don't recall what I used (which is really helpful - I know) but a quick scout around offers this:

http://freshmeat.net/projects/squidclamav

This works with Squidguard: http://viralator.sourceforge.net/
Untested, but after my experience with Dansguardian anything else is worth a try!

Without being rude, I would have to give Dansguardian a -1. It's great when it works, but the documentation - which you spend days following and trying to unravel, often ends up being out of date and not relevant to the version you are trying to install - it became a nightmare for me and I gave up with it.

Untangle is interesting and worth a look at too - but as a stand alone distro it's not for everyone.
Good luck and sorry that this is probably no more help than a chocolate teapot.

I have dansguardian-av with me as well. But the version on which it is built is old. So it lacks some of the features from the newer version that I would like to use.
