help with clamAV


hello, im running Debian-sarge and just finished an apt-get update on my system then i was trying to run freshclam and got an error telling me that my runlevel was wrong. ok init 4 yet i still get the same error... what gives:

Code:
laptop:~# runlevel
N 4
laptop:~# freshclam

clamav is already the newest version.

and as you can see it is also telling me that my clamAV is outdated, yet apt-get tells me it is already the newest vs? how can it be both outdated and newest vs at the same time?

help, sujestions, fixes all welcome thank you.

The levels relate to clam av levels, not runlevels.

0.81 is the latest - you can download it from:

clamav doesn't have a runlevel.

Are you trying to start clamd in a particular runlevel and not in the others?
