    Thread moved to Debian for a more appropriate fit.

    It's clamav.
    Not clam-av.

    Nor is the package for clamd called clam-daemon, but "clamav-daemon." Take a moment to acquaint yourself with the useful command apt-cache." Here is a search for packages whose name or description includes "clamav".
    Code:
    apt-cache search clamav
    The basic packages appear at the top of the list:
    Code:
    clamav - anti-virus utility for Unix - command-line interface
    clamav-base - anti-virus utility for Unix - base package
    clamav-daemon - anti-virus utility for Unix - scanner daemon
    clamav-docs - anti-virus utility for Unix - documentation
    clamav-freshclam - anti-virus utility for Unix - virus database update utility
    clamdscan - anti-virus utility for Unix - scanner client
    Some of these are "dependencies." Installing clamav automatically installs clamav-base and clamav-freshclam. Installing "clamav-daemon" brings along those and clamdscan as well. There are also a couple of libraries in the list.

    BTW, if you're installing ClamAV to fight viruses on a Linux distribution, it's not worth it because your system is much less vulnerable than one running Windows. However, if you have Windows files on this machine, like a Windows partition for dual-booting, or directories you're sharing with Windows machines, ClamAV is a worthwhile investment.

    Clamd runs full-time on my email servers so I can scan incoming mail for dirty attachments with MailScanner, but I never bother with it in all-Linux environments like my home network.
