Automating clamav startup

Hi there --

I am running SuSE 10 and I need to configure the application clamav to start on system boot. The program comes with a startup script specific to SuSE. However, when I copied the file to the /etc/init.d directory and ran it, there was no indication that clamd or freshclam started. What else should I do to correct this? Thanks.

hello i don't use suse but perhaps you should make a link for /etc/init.d/clamav (if clamav is the filename of script) to /etc/rc.d/rc#.d/. where # is the appropriate run level for the script.

ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/clamav /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S60clamav
ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/clamav /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/K40clamav
