You have installed Clam from two different packagers. Run the following to see your Clam related rpms:

# rpm -qa | grep -i clam

Clean out the older ones with rpm -e. Always use packages from the same source, if you change you have to clean up yourself, upgrade will not work.

Look in /etc/MailScanner/virus.scanners.conf to see which path MailScanner uses for Clam. You can also run "MailScanner --lint" too see what it thinks of your configuration. -- /peter _______________________________________________ Help us build a comprehensive ClamAV guide: visit
