Re: Bug#942172: clamav-daemon: After upgrade, clamd cannon create /var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl and stop.


I could only test from 0.100.0+dfsg-0+deb8u1 as I couldn't find 0.100.3+dfsg-0+deb8u1 anywhere in the archives and I'm out of servers running clamav-daemon 0.100.3+dfsg-0+deb8u1; but as /run/clamav/ is root owned in 0.100.0+dfsg-0+deb8u1 and clamav-daemon 0.101.4+dfsg-0+deb8u2 got started without a problem after the upgrade I'd say it's OK.

Many thanks!!!

I can test it but probably only in half a day time or so. I'll get back to you then. Many thanks.

Hi Filipe,

I did strike this in three boxes. Straight upgrade but opted not to touch
config when asked. Don't know if it matters. However I did not find any
reference to /etc/systemd/system/clamav-daemon.service.d/extend.conf in the
package scripts as in stretch.

The chown did make the difference. And the extend.conf prior to the upgrade
on further two boxes got the upgrade working, AFAICT.

thanks for your answer.

After further investigations, I have found a probable cause for this issue:
debian/patches/clamd_dont_depend_on_clamav_demon_socket.patch was
mistakenly backported from the stretch upload.

This should not have been backported, because the jessie package is still
providing the systemd socket, which was removed from the stretch package in
0.99.2+dfsg-3 because of #824042[0].

I did not backport this removal because I considered it too intrusive for a
security upload. Looking back, this was maybe a mistake because it
increased the complexity of the backport.

I have prepared a regression update addressing this issue. It would be a
true benefit for the quality of this upload if somebody could give it a try
before I go on with uploading. You can find (UNRELEASED) amd64 builds,
signed by myself on my Debian webpage:
