Thread: freshclam hangs

    Default freshclam hangs

    For a couple of weeks now freshclam seems to hang while downloading the daily updates. It stops at daily-25380 and doesn't move from there. My clamav version is 0.100.3

    1. Does anyone experience something similar?
    2. What can I do about it?

    Any ideas anyone?

    I have no personal experience with this. However, there's a mailing list thread about the issue:

    freshclam hangs at 100% CPU on Downloading daily-25380.cdiff
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;
    testing Leap 15.2Alpha

    Thanks!! It seems to be my problem.

    Unfortunately, the mailing list thread calls for deleting a file called
    Code:
    daily.cvd
    . This file does not exist in the given directory.
    However,
    Code:
    daily.cld and main.cvd
    are both there. Which one should go?

    Cheers

    Ask in the mailing list? Apparently that is where the gurus are for this case (not many people here use clamav. I assume).
