    How do I fix this ? Whats wrong ? Why isn’t ClamAV updated ?
    And why doesn’t zerosehell have a proper HDD-installer so we don’t have to mess around with tiny images and physdiskwrite?

    Try deleting the contents of the database, after making a backup first.

    I know how to delete the database, thank you .
    My question was : How do I FIX it ??
    as in : so the db isn’t corrupted in the first place .
    Reason : Your suggested “fix” works.. until the next db-update .
    At this point clamAV seems to download an incremental db-update..
    and then informs me that this version of clamAV does not support incremental db-updates ?
    SO : HOW DO WE UPDATE clamAV ?

    Clamav is updated automatically, you just set the “Number of checks per day” and the “country mirror”. Verify that the

    /var/register/system/ClamAV/db 

    is accessible by the system and writeable.
    Also this is just a forum with users of Zeroshell, trying to help each other. Irony won’t help you solving your problem faster, nor rudeness from the very first two posts.

    there is an hdd install walkthru on the site somewhere, i use live cd so that when new ver is avail i just switch cds seems faster and easier than installs may b wrong but i feel more secure this way.

    are you using the latest ZS release beta12? i have it running in 4 different locations and have not had clam issues since beta 11 when it was sayin clam ver was out of date, but clam is not the best protection out there you are always better to run av’s on ur client machines
