If this is the correct approach then should I treat clamav-daemon
failing to start as a bug?
Reproduction steps are easy:
* remove all default clamav database files (*.cld,*.cvd) - move them for
example into a directory
* create the custom database (as described in the previously suggested
* try to startup clamav-daemon ("e.g. /etc/init.d/clamav-daemon start")
Clamav-daemon will fail to start. I want it to start with only a custom
database. If it isn't possible then please could the database maintainer
provide empty database files (daily.cld, bytecode.cld,main.cvd)?
