I posted this on the clamav list as well, as I do not know whether this is a rpm issue or clamav issue.
Strange problem indeed:

[root /tmp] #>yum list installed "clamav*"
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Installed Packages
clamav.x86_64             0.98-2.el5.rf                         installed
clamav-db.x86_64          0.98-2.el5.rf                         installed
clamav-milter.x86_64      0.98-2.el5.rf                         installed
[root /tmp] #>

[root /tmp] #>su clamav -c /usr/bin/freshclam

I have checked the following:

 - all configuration files point to the same database directory
 - there is only one binary for each of the clamav things on the system
 - freshclam updates with no problems
 - clamconf report correct databases but also:
   Software settings
   Version: 0.98

Any ideas?
It has been complaining about this one for some time.


My software never has bugs; it just develops random features.
