Full Version: Perl Clamav Module
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

I wanted to follow your guide "Installing A Postfix Mail Server {On RHEL or Clones (Like WBEL / CentOS / TaoLinux)}" for my WBEL server
All was fine until I tried to install Mail::ClamAV using CPAN

Here's what I get on screen:
cpan> install Mail::ClamAV
Running install for module Mail::ClamAV
Running make for S/SA/SABECK/Mail-ClamAV-0.11.tar.gz

Checking if your kit is complete...

A problem was encountered while attempting to compile and install your Inline
C code. The command that failed was:

The build directory was:

To debug the problem, cd to the build directory, and inspect the output files.

Of course, this is the same problem if I try to install by myself using the sources

I'd appreciate any help... unsure.gif
Try doing the following before entering CPAN:

export LANG=C

then try again...
looks like the same... sad.gif

Just one thing about guide's part.4 : the link you give (wget is out of date.
In clamav folder there is now clamav-0.80rc4-1.src.rpm so I used this release. I hope there is no consequence... unsure.gif

So, for the moment I use clamav instead clamavmodule in MailScanner.conf (by the way, you didn't explain in your guide why you prefer clamavmodule. Can you tell me more about that?)

Would you also advise me about my sql log?
041014 17:12:55  mysqld started
Cannot initialize InnoDB as 'innodb_data_file_path' is not set.
If you do not want to use transactional InnoDB tables, add a line
to the [mysqld] section of init parameters in your my.cnf
or my.ini. If you want to use InnoDB tables, add to the [mysqld]
section, for example,
innodb_data_file_path = ibdata1:10M:autoextend
But to get good performance you should adjust for your hardware
the InnoDB startup options listed in section 2 at
/usr/libexec/mysqld: ready for connections

According to you, what is the best action? To enter a path or to enter skip-innodb? unsure.gif
Not a real large difference between the two (calmav and clamavmodule) ... I used clamavmodule because it uses slightly less resources for very high volume mail servers.

I haven't tried the install with the latest source rpms ... but I will try it soon and update the guide.
Thanks smile.gif And what about the mysql setup?
Still checking the mysql ... but the clamav module is a bug ... see this link:

I installed 0.74 (from my website), installed the module via CPAN, removed 0.74 and installed 0.80rc4. I then installed MailScanner-4.35.4-1.rpm.tar.gz.

Everything else went as planned.
I'll try asap (I'll be away for one week). Thanks again smile.gif
As to the MySQL issue, there is more than one table type for MySQL. One of the table types is:


That is actually the best way (in my opinion) to do MySQL tables, but I haven't enabled it in MySQL 3.23 installs (like the one for WBEL/CentOS). It is installed by default in MySQL 4.

In this case, I would put:


as the last line in the [mysqld] section of /etc/my.cnf

Note: You can leave it alone ... and you will get the error in the logs, but InnoDB will not start...

I did that this evening (yes, there was a long time). rpm -e clamav clamav-devel, rpm -e mailscanner, and followed your instructions. I got new errors! I thought I was becoming crazy!

... until I realized that the clamav module had been updated biggrin.gif

So I did rpm-e clamav clamav-devel again, installed the recent one, and all ran perfectly wink.gif
May I ask you more?

This is perfect for my own server's user account and for my own domain. Then what would be the next action to perform in order to setup email-only for the people which I don't want to create a "real" account, (for my own domain, and for virtual domains too)? Do I need something like LDAP?(I don't know exactly what it is)... unsure.gif
