I failed to get to the bottom of this one and re-cloned the machine, as
it was faster to do :-)
Check your /etc/ld.so.conf and hose /opt/sophos-av,
/usr/local/lib/libsav*, /etc/sav* for starters, then reinstall the
latest version of version 6.
Make sure you haven't got any sav processes running.
service sav-protect stop
service sav-web stop
service sav-rms stop
chkconfig --del sav-web
chkconfig --del sav-protect
chkconfig --del sav-rms
Delete all /usr/local/Sophos* files. Do an "ldconfig" to flush the lib
cache. Delete /usr/local/bin/savscanm and /usr/bin/savscan.
Once you've deleted all the old one and reinstalled the new one, try
"savscan" on a file or two first to see if that works. If it does, then
rebuild perl-SAVI as well.
