I fixed the following...
/etc/clamd.conf and /etc/clamav-milter.conf have to be in sync on the
clamd local socket...
# delete the "Example" line near top
/etc/sysconfig/clamav-milter had a bunch of old config stuff that has
to be removed. should read JUST...
and, the socket given above as MilterSocket has to match whats in
and do a `make` in /etc/mail then
# service restart clamd
# service restart sendmail
and all should be hunky dory.
Me thinks this clamd and clamav-milter upgrade -should- have created
some .rpmnew files, if it had, I would have found this much much faster
as I'm in the habit of diffing all those with the current 'active' file,
and incorporating changes.
