Hi folks,


Virtual Machine - VServer
Host - Debian Etch - with full X packages installed including Gnome desktop
Guest - Debian Etch, basic OS for installing headless mail server

Package - clamav-freshclam


It was discovered that after installing the captioned package mouse pointer freezed on the Host. Because there is no X installed on the Guest I have no idea whether it has influence on the Guest.


On removing the package

$ sudo apt-get --purge remove clamav-freshclam
Code:

  The value of variable $myhostname is "", but should have been
  a fully qualified domain name; perhaps uname(3) did not provide such.
  You must explicitly assign a FQDN of this host to variable $myhostname
  in amavisd.conf, or fix what uname(3) provides as a host's network name!

Errors were encountered while processing:

E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Any advice to fix the problem. TIA
