I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Upon updating clam definitions with sudo freshclam I got the message that my current clam software (0.98.1) was outdated and that I should upgrade to 0.98.3., which I tried to do in many steps (below) but was stopped by the error message "checking for OpenSSL installation/usr" and then "Configure error: OpenSSL not found"; even though SPM shows that OpenSSL IS installed v 1.01-4 ubuntu 5.13! Here is what I've tried so far:
- uninstalled clamav 0.98.1.
- downloaded clamav 0.98.3; unzipped that folder and then changed directory to that folder and ran in Terminal:
./configure. After a minute this process then stops at the above error message about 'OpenSSL not found".
- I've tried to install clamav 0.98.3 from Ubuntu Packages with
sudo apt-get instal clamav clamav-daemonand
- I've tried to install clamav 0.98.3 by first updating my system with
sudo apt-get updateand
sudo apt-get upgrade, and then
sudo add-apt-repository ppa: Ubuntu-clamav/ppa'and
sudo apt-get upgradeagain, and then
sudo freshclamagain to update the definitions; all to no avail.
I've since re-installed clamav 0.98.1 because I don't want to be without an anti-virus protection, even one with outdated definitions. But, I still want to update clamav to 0.98.3. Where did I go wrong and where to I go from here to successfully upgrade/install clamav 0.98.3? Thanksc
