Re: amavis installation
Almost every software comes with a file called README amavis-perl-11
also has one such file. According to it
The idea is to use perl modules where ever possible so that the script
be as self-contained and independent as possible. This should hopefully
make it much more portable and reduce the number of hacks required to
with subtle differences between commands on different UNIX systems.
But some perl modules are not ready for prime time yet, so we still
require a number of external commands.
The configure script will stop with an error message if the following
external commands/programs are not found. See doc/amavis.txt, or the
amavis web site at http://www.amavis.org/ for information on where to
o perl (obviously)
o virus scanner software (obviously)
A file command which understands the -b option is required, e.g. the
one from ftp://ftp.astron.com/pub/file/
o bunzip2 (part of the bzip2 package)
o lha (version 1.14g or later!)
o uncompress (standard on Unix and Unix-like systems)
procmail is only required if amavis is configured for use as local
(/etc/postfix/main.cf:$mailbox_command) with postfix. See README.postfix
In order to run this script you need the following perl modules
They are all available from CPAN (http://www.cpan.org/).
MIME-tools version 5.313 or better (!!)
Convert-TNEF 0.06 or better (!!)
If you have the CPAN module installed, the most convenient way to
these modules is to launch the CPAN shell with
perl -MCPAN -e shell
and tell it to:
I really hope people can figure out the rest from here....
