People: I have uploaded a set of rpm packages of the 20010714 snapshot of amavisd and all the related programs and Perl modules. The URL is http://rmrpms.tripod.com/amavis/ The amavisd package was prepared so it is configured by default to interface with the Postfix MTA. Hopefully the packages should help people to implement AMaViS on Red Hat Linux systems (in fact I'm running it on my RHL 6.2 systems. I use and recommend the excellent rpm packages of Postfix Simon J. Mudd maintains at http://www.pobox.com/~sjmudd/postfix/). The amavisd rpm package is based in the work done by the SuSE people for their package plus some bugfixes and tweaks both to the amavisd files ant to the rpm creation process. Source (recommended) and binary (Red Hat Linux 6.2/i386, noarch) packa- ges are available. All the packages are prepared, built and tested on a Red Hat Linux 6.2 system, but I think they should work on newer versions of the distribu- tion if you download and rebuild the source rpms. The packages are GPG signed.

This version is a big change from the 0.2.x series of the software and from the second generation amavisd-perl-11 as the main virus scanning script now run as a Perl daemon (amavisd) that communicates with the MTA through sockets and a small, compact client program. Although MTAs currently supported by AMaViS are Exim, Qmail, Postfix, and Sendmail; this package was created with Postfix in mind. Please refer to the README.postfix file included in the package. Also, this package comes configured by default to use the H+BEDV (http://www.hbedv.com/) antivirus package. If you plan to use another of the suported virus scanners then you should edit /etc/amavisd.conf. Please see the README.scanner file. ... -- Ramiro

* Tue Nov 27 2001 - Creation. Tripod does not allow diretory listings anymore. Thanks to Nick Rout for pointing this. I dream about the day I can afford the costs associated with decent hosting. But living in a 'developing country' does not help too much (just coming from a meeting where a 20% salary cut for me and all my coworkers was announced so I think the dream will last a couple of extra years :-/)
