[SOLVED] Klam av
I am trying to install clam and klam frontend
i Used slacky repositoru and installed clamav, and klamav frontend.
it would not run from th eGUI,
so i ran from terminal and got the following error
klamav: error while loading shared libraries: libclamav.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I searched repos/google for libclam.so.4 and cannot find it. I also tried reinstall.
Any help is appreciated.
Assuming clamav is indeed installed, it might just be that klamav is looking for that file in a place where it isn't. For instance, it might be looking for libclamav.so.4 in /usr when it's installed to /usr/lib. Another possibility is that it is specifially looking for libclamav.so.4 and what you actually have (as an eaxample) is libclamav.so.5. A symlink can be used for either problem. If the former, you could do (as examples):
If the later:
ln -s /usr/lib/libclamav.so.4 /lib/libclamav.so.4
Just trying to give you a few ideas. Hope this helps.
ln -s /usr/lib/libclamav.so.5 /usr/lib/libclamav.so.4
I performeda slocate libclamav and found that I had libclamav.so.5 not the .4
So I performed the later command (ln -s /usr/lib/libclamav.so.5 /usr/lib/libclamav.so.4) as root
got same error for libclamunrar_iface.so.4
performed slocate and performed same logic as you taught me on the other files.
(ln -s /usr/lib/libclamunrar_iface.so.5 /usr/lib/libclamunrar_iface.so.4)
(ln -s /usr/lib/libclamunrar.so.5 /usr/lib/libclamunrar.so.4)
I ran klamav from command line and got an error theat said no protocol specified, so I ran from the GUI and it works!
The reason I posted so much was to
1) thansk you and
2) close this thread so if someone else stumbles on it this post can hopefully help them.
