Description Zenon Panoussis 2005-04-23 19:59:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050417 Fedora/1.7.7-1.3.1

Description of problem:
Attempting to update 5.2.2-1 with 5.2.2-1.FC3 using up2date fails due to a conflict about /etc/log.d/conf/services/clamav.conf, which is owned by the clamav package. 

clamav is not part of the official FC3 distribution, so FC3's logwatch should not contain/claim its files. 

As an aside, yum had no problems with this; it just went right on and made a mess:

# rpm -qf /etc/log.d/conf/services/clamav.conf

I guess taht's a different bug...

This is not a bug of logwatch (especially against package not provided by
RedHat), but bug of clamav. Btw, the latest clamav (clamav-0.83-1) solves this
