    Question on CLAM for RH9!

    I installed ClamAV!
    But i dun noe how to run it. I am a Linux Newbie so pls explain in detail.

    root@localhost clam]# rpm -ivh clamav-0.70-1.i386.rpm
    warning: clamav-0.70-1.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 6cdf2cc1
    Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
    1:clamav ########################################### [100%]
    You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root

    [root@localhost root]# clam
    bash: clam: command not found

    I then did a search on my folders for ClamAV
    And i found "logwatch" in /etc/log.d
    i ran it but nothing happen?

    [root@localhost root]# cd /etc/log.d
    [root@localhost log.d]# logwatch
    [root@localhost log.d]#

    I have no idea how ClamAV works but did you RTFM?

    Edit: It took me 2 seconds of RTFM to find the clamscan command.
