Problem Installing ClamAV on Fedora Core 5 system.


I have a Fedora Core 5 system and I have tried to install clamav-0.88.4-1.i386.rpm twice. I get NO error messages and it says installation complete. I don't see any indication that its running or that it has been installed. I used the Package Manager to do install and it seems to have installed the software. What am I missing?

Well after it install, I guess you need to configure clamav. try running the command clamav or hit tab to see other options in terminal.

In the second part, I think he means type clamav[tab][tab] inside a terminal.

w3bd3vil,
Thanks for your response. I tried the command "clamav" and got the respnse "Command Not Found". How do I determine if the clamav software was installed correctly? Do you need more info? I also tried "Sepero" suggestion using tabs after clamav with the same response.

rpm -q clamav
should tell you whether clamav is installed or not.
also check if you have the file /etc/clamd.conf
edit that and type clamd.
read the docs on clamav.net, you should get sufficient info.

Actually, the command you want is clamscan. It should be under /usr/bin/. So, to scan the file "test", you would type:

$ clamscan test

There are gui's available too.
