Hello. I build clamav-0.105.1,1 (from quarterly branch) in Poudriere and I've always used it without problems. Suddenly last night freshclam started dying on a few machines: it turn out it prints "bad system call", due to the lack of COMPAT_FREEBSD11 in the kernel. Strangely it's been working with those kernels for years. In any case, I'm trying to find a way out of this: I really wouldn't want to install a new kernel on a remote machine, considering the customers might be on the verge of closing for holidays, so I might not have the chance to go and fix it in case of troubles. OTOH I can't leave ClamAV without DB updates for weeks, so I'm investigating if an alternative exists. Why this requirement? Is there a way to recompile ClamAV in order to let freshclam work without this kernel support? Thanks. bye av.
