Hi everybody,

Does any one has a working setup with kaspersky command line scanner new 
version ( kav4ws_5.7-26_i386.deb )   with ubuntu server 9.10

I checked that the kaspersky is working when manually scanning on 
command line but with the mailscanner setup.

following is my config: and MS lint output

kaspersky-4.5    /usr/lib/MailScanner/kaspersky-wrapper    /opt/kaspersky

# MailScanner --lint
Trying to setlogsock(unix)

Reading configuration file /etc/MailScanner/MailScanner.conf
Reading configuration file /etc/MailScanner/conf.d/README
Read 858 hostnames from the phishing whitelist
Read 5855 hostnames from the phishing blacklists

Checking version numbers...
Version number in MailScanner.conf (4.79.11) is correct.

Your envelope_sender_header in spam.assassin.prefs.conf is correct.
MailScanner setting GID to  (124)
MailScanner setting UID to  (117)

Checking for SpamAssassin errors (if you use it)...
Using SpamAssassin results cache
Connected to SpamAssassin cache database
SpamAssassin reported no errors.
I have found kaspersky-4.5 clamav scanners installed, and will use them 
all by default.
Connected to Processing Attempts Database
Created Processing Attempts Database successfully
There are 15 messages in the Processing Attempts Database
Using locktype = posix
MailScanner.conf says "Virus Scanners = auto"
Found these virus scanners installed: clamav, kaspersky-4.5
Filename Checks: Windows/DOS Executable (1
Other Checks: Found 1 problems
Virus and Content Scanning: Starting
./1/ Eicar-Test-Signature FOUND

Virus Scanning: ClamAV found 1 infections
Infected message 1 came from
Virus Scanning: Found 1 viruses

If any of your virus scanners (clamav,kaspersky-4.5)
are not listed there, you should check that they are installed correctly
and that MailScanner is finding them correctly via its virus.scanners.conf.

Thanks in advance,
