Thread: clamscan freeze

  1. #1

    Default clamscan freeze

    I have opensuse 10.3 and using clamscan at root dir on the command line :

    Code:
    su
    cd ..
    cd ..
    clamscan -r --exclude-dir=windows
    On the older(10.2) opensuse, it it would work fine and output the results. On 10.3(newer clamscan?), it hangs on "/sys/devices/platform/floppy.0/block/fd0/power/wakeup". I'v been told it's trying to read a device as file. If put a directory mask in the command line, it still freezes later on. Any ideas on fixing the problem?

    Also, klamav desktop application has the same problem.

    You are scanning "/", so you have to exclude /sys, /proc and /dev.

    Default clamscan freeze

    It worked. Here's the command line.

    Code:
    clamscan -r --exclude-dir=windows --exclude-dir=/sys --exclude-dir=/proc --exclude-dir=/dev
