Description David Highley 2008-09-13 15:10:50 EDT
Description of problem:
The RPM clamav-milter sets up the wrong user to run as. It conflicts with the user defined for RPM clamav-filesystem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Install clamav and enable it. Will get errors about not being able to lock in /var/lib/clamav.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
Will get errors about not being able to lock in /var/lib/clamav. Updates do not work. See information below for what I think needs to be done to fix this issue. This issue still exist in Fedora 9 distribution.

Expected results:

Additional info:
rpm clamav-milter:
    add a dependency for rpm package clamav-filesystem
        which creates the user and group for clamav
    postinstall scriptlet
        remove the /usr/sbin/fedora-groupadd
        remove the /usr/sbin/fedora-useradd
        change group to clamav for /var/log/clamd.milter
    change User in script to clamav
Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 06:09:06 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 01:45:52 EST
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
