Sabayon 14.1 64 Bit Installed Clamav & ClamTK

Postby ldkraemer » Fri Dec 27, 2013 0:10

As a New Sabayon user, I downloaded Sabayon 14.1 64 Bit XFCE ISO and installed on Hard drive. Installed ClamAV & ClamTK. ClamTK doesn't scan because /etc/freshcalm.conf wasn't created. Located a copy on a the web, and created the file. Made the edits suggested at http://clamtk.sourceforge.net/help/faq-clamtk.html for:
Code: Select all
DatabaseMirror db.US.clamav.net


After that I executed the following commands to update my Anitvirus definitions:
Code: Select all
sudo freshclam -d -c 2
sudo freshclam

This asks the freshclam updater to run as a daemon, and check for updates twice per day.
Now ClamTK executes a recursive scan on my /home/larry directory.

Why is there a problem such that the /etc/freshclam.conf file is missing?

Thanks.

Larry

Perhaps it will surprise you, but there is /etc/freshclam.conf.sample . Feeling brave enough to guess what it does?
Just cp it to *.conf file, and edit *.conf…
Code: Select all
cp /etc/freshclam.con{f.sample,f,}
nano -w /etc/freshclam.conf

Providing sample config file, instead of config is done purposely, so user has to at least see config, which should result in bigger chance that user actually will adjust configuration himself/herself. I suggest to close your bug report as “FIXED INVALID”.

About running it as a daemon, there's systemd unit for that:
Code: Select all
systemctl start clamd  # starts daemon now
systemctl enable clamd  # sets daemon to start at boot
Why, and how to add "[Solved]" to your post. Please read. ← credits to Fitzcarraldo

Cb7,
Thanks, somehow I missed that file in my search. I've updated the BUG report.
