Hi there!

Sorry it's taken me so long to respond. I've had issues receiving the Daily Digests.

Here's the error message I receive when I attempt to run freshclam:

[parkernathan at redhatpc ~]$ freshclam

ERROR: Please edit the example config file /etc/freshclam.conf

ERROR: Can't open/parse the config file /etc/freshclam.conf

[parkernathan at redhatpc ~]$

Here is the error message I receive when I attempt to run clamscan:

[parkernathan at redhatpc ~]$ clamscan

Any help in resolving these two issues would be much appreciated.
