Description of problem:
The new clamav-update package puts a new clamav-update file in /etc/cron.d. This calls /usr/share/clamav/freshclam-sleep, a bash shellscript.
/usr/share/clamav/freshclam-sleep uses `hostid` to get a random time to sleep. On an AMD64 box:
[james@kendrick ~]$ hostid
[james@kendrick ~]$ echo $[ 0x`hostid`]
Not surprisingly, sleep doesn't like sleeping for negative seconds. Even if the number was positive, that's still an awfully long time to sleep.
Maybe line 26 of /usr/share/clamav/freshclam-sleep could be changed to use $RANDOM?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
[root@kendrick cron.d]# /usr/share/clamav/freshclam-sleep
sleep: invalid option -- 2
Try `sleep --help' for more information.
thx; should be solved in CVS
