Hello everyone.

Had a quick question on upgrading clamav on my mailscanner setup.
My setup:

FreeBSD 4.9
Sendmail 8.12.11
MailScanner 4.29 (Yes, I know it needs updating) :)

I came in this morning and updated my clamav from 0.80 to 0.81.
Everything appeared to have gone well. However, I know get a funny error
when I try and run 'freshclam' to update my definitions. I get the following:

Can't change dir to /usr/local/share/clamav

Doing a little bit of work, I see that it is possibly looking in the wrong
directory. It should be looking in:


Now, I know this is clamav, but i was hoping some of the other FreeBSD
users on this list might be able to shed some light on what the possible
problem may be.

I am going to jump over to here, but there list is boogered
up right now.

Anyway, I was hoping somebody here may have an idea and could help me out.

I appreciate the help.
