Ubuntu :: ClamAV-clamd - Can't Connect To UNIX Socket /var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl

Apr 16, 2010

This started happening sometime yesterday afternoon on a server that's been trouble free for years.

My Ubuntu update is scheduled to run every month on the 5th, so this was roughly 10 days after that. So it seems to me it's not update related. The only thing I've done on the server lately is update a spamassassin rule which required an amavis restart. That was done earlier in the week.

I've already reviewed issues at [url] and all the conditions are correct for the more recent How to.

I can also confirm that, in fact, /var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl does not exist.

I am tring to do this:


And i get this in return


Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming.

The following information may resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.

I dont get any install. and the information i have collect from people say that and install should not be stopped becuase of an depend

So as any one who is semi new would do i then tried installing the depend


And i get this in return


E: Package 'phpapi-20060613+lfs' has no installation candidate

So it look like problem after problem

Does any one know why i can not install php5-clamavlib

I have UBUNTU 11.04 desktop (with zpanel installed on it)

*zpanel an open source web hosting panel for windows and NOW LINUX (zpanel has just been release on UBUNTU ONLY ).

Server :: Clamd Taking An Age To Start And Guzzling Ram?

Apr 7, 2010

Clamd on my CentOS latest stable box takes an age to start.s in, well over half an hour.Two clamd processes get started, each of which has a VIRT of about 220m. Load average goes through the roof, values from 6-8+.The server is a bit weedy (190MB RAM, processor I forgot), but I didn't have these problems before. They seemed to arise after running freshclam to update definitions.

Slackware :: Binaries Clamd And Freshclam Aren't Installed Anywhere?

I can install clamav from SBo no problem, but the version is outdated. I downloaded the newer source code from clamav's site, edited the slackbuild to reflect the new version number, and rebuilt the package. But I get this following error when building.

Config files are installed in the proper places (except the file /etc/clamd.conf.rej referred to below which doesn't exist). But the binaries clamd and freshclam aren't installed anywhere.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Trying To Upgrade ClamAV - RPM?

May 26, 2010

I am trying to upgrade my clam AV to latest Last times I just uploaded to the server and used RPM command and it was installing. Now I cant find RPM for this ver. So I guess I need to prepare one.

I used the guide here:
Packaging software with RPM, Part 1: Building and distributing packages
by IBM
Changing all wget -> clamav

But when run this I got:
# rpmbuild -v -bb --clean clamav.spec
Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.74542
+ umask 022
+ cd /home/myclamav/BUILD

RPM build errors:

Is there a better way to create RPMs? or Where do I get RPM for this version? I couldn't find it through their site.

Ubuntu :: Windows Corrupted, CLAMAV Does Not Work?

Oct 18, 2010

My Windows Installation is infected even with Eset installed! I don't know how to clean it. Already tried safe mode scan, but that doesn't even clean it. The only reason I installed ubuntu was so that I could download infected files without any conserns of my windows parition being infected. When ever I download a file, I move it to the NTFS partition from where windows can access it. But just about a week ago when I booted into Windows, my whole drive was infected, not only windows installed partition but also all my NTFS partition. Can anyone please tell me how can I CLEAN the files rather than qurantine all the files which CLAMAV does!

Also, what steps should I take in advance before downloading a virus infected file? I know the virus could've have gotten in when I disable eset for some software installation but it should clean after boot or after being booted.But there should be a way to clean all my NTFS partition .... how? I don't know how to used CLAMAV properly because whenever I try to scan anything, it always returns with '0 files scan' because I think the directory scan doesn't work the way it should!

Ubuntu Security :: ClamAV Cant Upgrade Or Install??

Dec 10, 2010

what a horrendous piece of software. Ive been at it 3 days trying to do something that ought to be simple and everytime i solve one problem another problem arises. at first I removed the old clamav 9.5 or something. I got the latest ubuntu release btw, and Clamav used to work when i first installed it in the previous ubuntu release. anyway, it asked me to upgrade, so since synaptic doesnt have the latest, i downloaded from sourceforge. I did the whole ./configure gave me errors like need build-essentials-- which i then did, error: need zlib.dv--- I did that one too. Now two more errors that i need to fix so I can compile it.
