Clamav freshclam


Hello,
I just installed a clamav package on Slackware 10.1. It updates by freshclam. I edited /etc/freshclam.conf - removed "example" and gave databasa mirror :

less freshclam.conf | grep DatabaseMirror
DatabaseMirror db.gb.clamav.net
DatabaseMirror database.clamav.net

but when I run freshclam :

freshclam
ERROR: You must specify at least one database mirror.

I am giving also this:

ls -l | grep freshclam
-rw-rw-rw- 1 root root 2895 2005-03-21 11:58 freshclam.conf

Can anyone help me pls!

This is what mine says in that area.
Code:
# database.clamav.net is a round-robin record which points to our most
# reliable mirrors. It's used as a fall back in case db.XY.clamav.net is
# not working. DO NOT TOUCH the following line unless you know what you
# are doing.
DatabaseMirror database.clamav.net

I found out what it was for me-- I just had to comment out the word "EXAMPLE"

in the freshclam.conf, quite silly really.
