SpamAssassin Error "spamd: no response to STREAM cmd, Success" and other errors


I am having problems with smtp-vilter and SpamAssassin on Fedora Core 2. Basically, what's happening is the mail is scoring high enough to be called spam as you can see below "identified spam (6.8/5.0)" but smtp-vilter says the spam is unchecked and the mail gets sent along as normal. Here is a section of my maillog file:

Aug 31 09:16:10 spamd[3316]: connection from localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1] at port 57060
Aug 31 09:16:10 spamd[3669]: checking message <20040831083002.frylmpinzv@feelingmutuals.com> for (unknown):507.

Aug 31 09:16:14 smtp-vilter[3762]: message contains no virus

Aug 31 09:16:14 sendmail[3667]: i7VEG7NB003667: Milter add: header: X-SMTP-Vilter-Version: 1.1.4
Aug 31 09:16:14 sendmail[3667]: i7VEG7NB003667: Milter add: header: X-SMTP-Vilter-Backend: vilter-spamd
Aug 31 09:16:14 sendmail[3667]: i7VEG7NB003667: Milter add: header: X-SMTP-Vilter-Status: clean

Why might I be getting the spamd "use on uninitialized value" errors? Also, the error "error during spam scan of file /tmp/vilter.XXXXukbcRG" is giving me grief, I have tried changing permissions on /var/smtp-vilter/tmp and also changing what user spamd is run as, but no luck. Where would the above errors be coming from and why does SpamAssassin sometimes come back with status: unchecked? (actually that happens with a lot of messages)

Thanks.


^^^^ If anyone cares, it seems I have solved this problem. For further debugging, I ran smtp-vilter in the foreground and tried sending a message, spamassassin timed out, while clamav worked fine, based on the following output:
smtp-vilter: using configuration from file /etc/smtp-vilter/smtp-vilter.conf
smtp-vilter: spamd: using configuration from file /etc/smtp-vilter/vilter-spamd.
conf
smtp-vilter: spamd: setting spamd host to localhost
smtp-vilter: spamd: setting spamd port to 783
smtp-vilter: spamd: setting nr of tries to 8
smtp-vilter: spamd: setting timeout to 600
smtp-vilter: clamd: using configuration from file /etc/smtp-vilter/vilter-clamd.
conf
smtp-vilter: clamd: setting clamd host to localhost
smtp-vilter: clamd: setting clamd port to 3310
smtp-vilter: clamd: setting nr of tries to 8
smtp-vilter: clamd: setting timeout to 600
smtp-vilter: clamd: set scantpye to filesystem
smtp-vilter: clamd: scanning realpath when chrooted
smtp-vilter: running in foreground, watch the system log for error messages
smtp-vilter: timeout
smtp-vilter: message contains no virus


I had already set the timeout for spamd to 600 in the /etc/smtp-vilter/vilter-spamd.conf file, and the same timeout was set for smtp-vilter in the sendmail.mc file, so you could imagine the confusion. Then it occured to me that I installed razor, pyzor, and dcc, but never saw anything from these in the log file, so I was wondering if they weren't working. Sure enough, in the /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf I had specified spamassassin to use those three programs. I disabled them and everything worked like a charm. Note that dcc, pyzor, and razor may also be turned on by default, or in one of the files in /usr/share/spamassassin.
Hope this helps anyone else out there who is having this problem, and if anyone knows how to properly setup pyzor, razor, and dcc, I'd be happy to hear from you in this post.

UPDATE:

I'm not sure how to fix the error described above, but I guess being patient has paid off, smtp-vilter version 1.1.8 with spamassassin 3.01 and clamav 0.80 seem to fix all the problems.
