Re: clamav (again)



First of all, I appreciate the work.

I prefer to install the empty db package, and have freshclam download the initial database.  I didn't see a db-empty package in your spec file.  I had some issues where after updating clamav, freshclam named the updated db files differently than came in the db package, and I ended up with clam complaining about having two databases.

My take from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=573191 was to add --disable-llvm to the build for EL5, since AFAIK the EL5 SELinux package doesn't have the clamd_use_jit boolean (I haven't checked 5.6).

Greetings. 

Last week at the epel meeting we talked about clamav and getting it
updated and maintained better. One of the issues that came up is that
folks would prefer a more understandable spec. That would help maintain
and keep it updated better. 

Toward that end I have: 

http://www.scrye.com/~kevin/fedora/clamav/

This is a package based on Dag's package from a while back and updated
for Fedora guidelines, etc. 

In some simple testing on epel5 and epel6 it works pretty well. It
upgrades the existing packages ok, with one exception: You need to
'mv /etc/freshclam.conf.rpmnew /etc/freshclam.conf' in order to get
freshclam happy. I'm not sure of a way around this, but if anyone has
one, I'd love to hear it. 

I mailed the EPEL maintainers of clamav last week and got one reply
saying the spec seemed fine, but nothing back from the other
co-maintainers. I'd like to set a time (say a week from now?) where we
just commit this new spec and push out updates for testing. 

Thoughts? Comments? Flames?
