I've recently installed Clam AV on my FC1. I was able to scan and everything. I am trying to execute clamd but I get the following errors:

ERROR: Please edit the example config file /usr/local/etc/clamd.conf.
ERROR: Can't open/parse the config file /usr/local/etc/clamd.conf

One thing, how can i scan the whole filesystem? I used "clamscan /" but it can't scan everything. Can you please help me configure the clamd.conf? The following are the thing I want Clam to work for me:

* Automatic Updates on virus patterns
* Scan all files and subfolders
* Integrate the clam with my mail server (if possible)

Hope someone out there can help me on this. Thanks

i can't help you with your error messages, but i have made a how-to guide for 'Postfix + ClamAV + MailScanner + Dovercot' on my local LUG site

i hope it helps.

also clamAV has a webmin module, i find everything a lot easier useing webmin, maybe that would help you out with your automatic update, etc

hope i helped.
