Yesterday I upgraded MailScanner, SpamAssassin and Clamav using the
install files from the MailScanner site.

When I started to install the SpamAssassin/Clam software I was cautioned
to exit the script and install clamd from an rpm site and then come back
to finish the install.

I was able to download the 96.5 and 97 code, but I was not able to
install them due to missing libraries.  Here's a snippet from the
SA/CLAM install script:

	There are 2 recommended ways of installing ClamAV, depending on
	various factors.
	If you want to use MailScanners support for Clamd
	daemon) then I recommend you cancel this script now (press
	and install the RPMs for clamav, clamav-db and clamd from
	Then re-run this script and tell me that clamscan is installed
	/usr/bin. This will set up your virus.scanners.conf file for

Using these downloads:

I received the following errors:

# rpm -Uvh clamav-0.96.5-1.el6.rf.i686.rpm

Note, I removed the .96.4 version via 'rpm -e'.

I am now using ClamAV from the tarball install off of the MailScanner
site, but I would prefer to use clamd.

Also, I have to remove the clam-related files installed by the tarball
if I am going to install clamd, since they are not loaded in the same

Please guide me on how I can install clamd.
