Very BIG Problem with debian packages versioning...



Package: clamav-daemon
Version: 0.80-2

The problem is related to clamav debian packages maintained by ... and hosted here:

deb http://people.debian.org/~sgran/debian woody main

I've 2 identical machines. These are versions installed in the 2 machines:

server1# dpkg -l | grep clam
ii  clamav         0.80-2         Antivirus scanner for Unix
ii clamav-base 0.80-2 Base package for clamav, an anti-virus utili
ii  clamav-daemon  0.80-2         Powerful Antivirus scanner daemon
ii clamav-freshcl 0.80-2 Downloads clamav virus databases from the In ii clamav-testfil 0.80-2 Use these files to test that your Antivirus
ii  libclamav1     0.80-2         Virus scanner library
ii  libclamav1-dev 0.80-2         Clam Antivirus library development files

server2# dpkg -l | grep clam
ii  clamav         0.80-2         Antivirus scanner for Unix
ii clamav-base 0.80-2 Base package for clamav, an anti-virus utili
ii  clamav-daemon  0.80-2         Powerful Antivirus scanner daemon
ii clamav-freshcl 0.80-2 Downloads clamav virus databases from the In ii clamav-testfil 0.80-2 Use these files to test that your Antivirus
ii  libclamav1     0.80-2         Virus scanner library
ii  libclamav1-dev 0.80-2         Clam Antivirus library development files

BUT THIS IS THE MATTER: on the 2 machines there are different versions of clamd anche clamdscan. Why che debian packages have not been updated ???? Is it normal that the same debian package version contains different program versions ????

server1# clamd -V
ClamAV 0.80/559/Thu Oct 28 15:08:33 2004
server1# clamdscan -V
ClamAV 0.80/559/Thu Oct 28 15:08:33 2004

server2# clamd -V
ClamAV 0.80/560/Fri Oct 29 09:32:46 2004
server2# clamdscan -V
ClamAV 0.80/560/Fri Oct 29 09:32:46 2004

Now, if i want v.560 on all machines must uninstall the packages and reinstall them, because from the dpkg point of view the packages has not changed !!

Thanks a lot.
