[Bug 216109] New: By itself klamav doesn't find databases of clamav.

Summary: By itself klamav doesn't find databases of clamav.
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Beta 1
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: X11 Applications
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: balazs.melikant@xxxxxxxxxxxx

CC: balazs.melikant@xxxxxxxxxxxx

If you fire up klamav, in few pop-ups you are informed on the fact that a
separate database folder was setup for you under the home directory of the user
logged in. Even that you can change the corresponding settings anytime, this
should not happen and klamav should detect an existing clamav installation.
On one installation I installed both clamav and the databases from rpm and on
another one just clamav and the databases were taken by freshclam. In both
cases klamav didn't detect .cvd files already present on the system in
/var/lib/clamav and downloaded them "freshly" into a subfolder of the user's
home, called "/home/user/.klamav/database".
First the system's default should be checked/used, users will just click&click
and agree the defaults, so if you have 20 users, will have 20 copies of the
updated databases. Anyway, I completely disagree having options in klamav to
upgrade not only klamav, but clamav as well! User(s) would likely have no
rights to replace any clamav components, as well as the databases.
And that's OK like this.

+ Two brief issues:
- klamav can't be stopped by right-click and exiting from the tray, but has to
be killed e.g. from command-line with its PID,
- there is a typo on the reports shown to the user(s) as 'viruseses'; please
see my screenshot.
