I've already seen this link.  I noticed when I read it that is was over 3
years old and that the links did not match the ClamAV documented link.  I
suspected the information might be stale and your results seem to confirm
that this.

Oh well.

>i get this from freshclam:

The broswer tells me this .cdiff is gone.  It's probably already been

>WARNING: Incremental update failed, trying to download daily.cvd WARNING:

We seen this one often enough.  Once I get freshclam to the point where it
will attempt to download files, I will look at what we can do to avoid the
realloc failure.  One though I had was to allocate all the space that will
be needed at startup.  This will avoid the realloc.  This may not be
sufficient, but we won't know without some testing.

That's the last i686 version.  You need to switch to the pentium4 platform
or settle for using the efficiently unsupported i686 builds.

[d:\tmp]yum --noplugins --disablerepo=*exp -C list installed wget

>manual updates??

Sure.  Like I said why not.  I downloaded current copies of main.cvd and
daily.cvd using firefox on suse and clamscan happily accepted them.
Unfortunately, wasn't paying attention and left both firefox and dooble
running so I ended with with a 350MB swap file and a system that needed to
be rebooted.  My bad.

Possibly.  However, I would suspect excessive memory use.

Makes sense.  This needs to be resolve or the current ClamAV will continue
to be a not quite ready for production use running on OS/2.
