Ok, I see.
But what is the meaning of this logfile message:

WARNING: Your ClamAV installation is OUTDATED!
WARNING: Local version: 0.88.7 Recommended version: 0.90

So you're complaining that it's not stable because a maintainer is
actually maintaining an existing version instead of pushing out a new
version?  That's completely contradictory.
0.90 is the recommended version by the developers of clamav. What is to
misunderstood here? Is there anybody out there who knows it better
than the developers of clamav what the recommended version is?



This is the funny thing, Fedora tots itself as "bleeding edge"
yet only do so called security backports to stuff, like the ol true RH used to, which was cool because RH never promoted itself as bleeding edge..

it seems its bleeding edge only when it suites them

Thats said, there is nothing stopping you from removing the 5 different packageds required to use clamav with Fedora and install once from source code with a simple
./configure && make && make install

you'be more bleeding edge current then fedora, and no need to worry about missing deps either :)
