New Clamav updated Mar 2nd but not available

Postby yaba-daba-doh » Thu Mar 17, 2016 3:19 am

I currently have Clamav v0.098.7 installed. The software center likewise is v0.98.7. Just this past March 2nd or so, Clamav released v0.99.1. When, if ever, will the latest release be made available?

You could try this:

Download the tarball from here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/clamav ... av/0.99.1/ {clamav-0.99.1.tar.gz }

Next install 'alien' via the Terminal (Ctrl+ Alt+ T):

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install alien


After you have installed 'alien', navigate in the terminal to your 'Downloads' folder and enter:

Code: Select all
sudo alien clamav-0.99.1.tar.gz


This should create a '.deb' file. You may see a red circle with a white cross in it - this is because we have had to use root privileges to create the file.

Uninstall your current installation of clam-av:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove clamav


next using 'gdebi' - if not installed:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install gdebi


Launch Gdebi package installer, locate the newly created .deb file and select 'Install' - bear in mind that clam-av latest may be dependent on certain kernels of GNU/Linux in order to install satisfactorily.

Please note you follow this guide at YOUR OWN RISK! ;) :D
