Wiki source for ClamAV

Show raw source

[[ Clam AntiVirus]] is a GPL anti-virus toolkit for UNIX (and OS/2). The main purpose of this software is the integration with mail servers (attachment scanning). The package provides a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon, a command line scanner, and a tool for automatic updating via Internet. The programs are based on a shared library distributed with the Clam AntiVirus package, which you can use with your own software. Most importantly, the virus database is kept up to date. A multithread plugin for InetPowerServer is available, ask for details (not free software).

Latest stable build for OS/2 is version 0.96.4, it can be installed from [[ Netlabs RPM repository]]; once RPM/YUM are installed, type from a command prompt:

##yum install clamav##
##yum install clamav-update##
##yum install clamav-server##

This will install ClamAV engine and command line scanner, freshclam tool, clamd daemon server.
Configuration files are now placed into /@unixroot/etc directory.

A new ClamAV build has been pushed into Netlabs experimental repository for testing. To access the exp repository, run

##yum install netlabs-exp##

then use yum update to get newer binaries. Be aware that experimental repository can have other updated tools, and maybe you don't want to install all of them: be sure to update only ClamAV packages and required dependancies.

Older WarpIN installers are still available for download:
- [[ WarpIN installation notes]].
- [[ WarpIN installation package]].

The status of current source integration can be followed [[ here]] on ClamAV bugtracker.

Additional requirements:
- [[ libc 0.6.3 runtime]]
- [[ libc pathrewriter]]
