Description Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2021-10-21 14:55:50 UTC
The latest clamav ebuild installs configs for clamd and freshclam to /etc/clamav/.

However the freshclam.conf file installed by default references the clamd.conf file in the old location:
# Send the RELOAD command to clamd.
# Default: no
NotifyClamd /etc/clamd.conf

I am not entirely sure what motivated the relocation of the config files. I generally think we should usually stick with default upstream paths, precisely to avoid such problems.
