OS Ubuntu 8.04.3 Hardy - installed ClamAV 0.99.2 yesterday, and can't seem
to get the daemon / clamd to function.
Installed in /usr/local/sbin - previously had 0.97 and earlier but had the
mpool_malloc() loop issue so had to torch it.
 
Here's what I get now when loading rc.local @boot:

-------end clip
 
As I'm typically a apt-get package installer, I don't know where to start
looking to ident and resolve the problem for this?
I had previously been getting a simple segmentation fault error at the end
of load echoes from clamd when executing from command line, but fixed that,
I think.
 
 
If anyone knows a speedy way to inquire with ClamAV authors, please also let
me know.  I'll try the proper channels and see if I can get some insight
from them.
 
 
Thank you
