ClamAV updates?
12/02/2018 15:30
I have recently updated a system at work from SuSE 10.0 toopenSUSE 11.2 in the hopes that it would get automatic updatesagain. This system is scanning mail for viruses using ClamAV.

When it was still 10.0, I had to manually update ClamAV regularly,by fetching the sources and re-compiling. With recent ClamAVversions this has become a major compilation job that took a longtime on the poor little machine.

With the new version I sort of assumed that the new ClamAV updates,that usually are brought forward as security updates, would bepart of the automatic updates of the system. And I think theywere, when 10.0 was still a supported system.

But now, with ClamAV 0.96.1 released on May 19th, the system isstill at ClamAV 0.96 and no updates are offered.

ClamAV is complaining loudly: Your ClamAV installation is OUTDATED!(it always does this when a newer version is available) Is there any hope for a ClamAV update via openSUSE or am I backto having to compile this myself?

These are separate things in ClamAV.

Of course I do not run freshclam as a cron job, but as a service.

(which is the way it is supposed to be done)

Do I now have to manually walk through unknown repositories?
