Good afternoon,

We have been successfully installing Clam AV on Centos instances in our environment.

We ran into a problem when we try to install on Ubuntu. We are using these<https://www.clamav.net/documents/installation-on-debian-and-ubuntu-linux-distributions> instructions and are able to get developer tools and library dependencies installed. When I try to install the unit testing dependencies, I get the following error

sudo: unable to resolve host <hostname>: Connection timed out
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package check-devel

When I run ./configure –enable-check or sudo ./configure –enable-check after downloading and unzipping the Clam AV files I get this error

ERROR!  Check was configured, but not found.  Get it from http://check.sf.net/

Then we run sudo apt-get install check and get this error

sudo: unable to resolve host <hostname>: Connection timed out
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
check is already the newest version (0.10.0-3).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 114 not upgraded.

When I run sudo apt-get install check-devel I get this error

sudo: unable to resolve host <hostname>: Connection timed out
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package check-devel

We were able to resolve the “sudo: unable to resolve host <hostname>: Connection timed out” error by adding the line 127.0.0.1 <hostname> in the /etc/hosts file

Do you have any suggestions for us for troubleshooting?

Thank you,

James Cheney
