Happy gobble gobble day!

Server is a mail and web box with latest centos 4 upgrades and has been
running and stable for probably over two years

Machine has perl 5.8.8 on it.

For a coupla days I have been trying to follow these basic instructions so
that I can run a test.


Now, the issue I am running into is that I needed to get a file-scan-clamav
perm module in rpm

So I opened up browser and search for "file-scan-clamav perl dag rpm" and
found some choices

Eventually I end up with this file


then when I try to install it says I need perl-base so I search and goto



when I install perl-base and then goto install the file-scan-clamav rpm I
get this...

yum localinstall perl-File-Scan-ClamAV-1.8-1mud2007.0.noarch.rpm

Error: Missing Dependency: perl-base >= 2:5.8.8 is needed by package

at this point, I was wondering what I specifically need to do.

So, I tried rebuilding perl-base and installing it yet it asked to be signed
so I have to figure that part out and if it will solve this.

Is that what the error is about in regards to perl-base >= 2:5.8.8

Or am I missing something else?

Dag, would you consider putting File::Scan::ClamAV rpm on your site please?

Thanks and kind regards!
