LibClamAV Warning: cli_scanbzip: bzip2 support not compiled in

Assume that you install clamAV from source and not from cpanel installed and you receive errors like this

LibClamAV Warning: cli_scanbzip: bzip2 support not compiled in
LibClamAV Warning: cli_scanbzip: bzip2 support not compiled in

you can try the following

yum install bzip2

yum install bzip2-devel

yum install libbz2

yum install libbz2-devel

yum install gcc*

remove clamav

killall clamd

reinstall clamav

wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/clamav/clamav-0.97.3.tar.gz
  • /scripts/ensurerpm gmp gmp-devel
  • Next you will need to create a user for clamav to use:
    useradd clamav
    Some OS's require you to add the group as well:
    groupadd clamav
    Don't worry if the user and/or group already exist.
  • Download the latest stable ClamAV distribution from http://www.clamav.net
    Note: If you are running Fedora Core 4 or earlier, you cannot install any version of ClamAV later than 0.91.2 because of a broken gcc.
  • Expand the distribution and cd into the resultant directory and build ClamAV using:
    tar -xzf clamav-*
    cd clamav*
    ./configure --disable-zlib-vcheck
    make
    make install
  • pico -w /usr/local/etc/freshclam.conf
    Comment out the line (put a # as the first character on the line) near the top that says simply:
    Example
  • pico -w /usr/local/etc/clamd.conf
    Comment out the line (put a # as the first character on the line) near the top that says simply:
    Example
  • pico -w /usr/local/etc/clamd.conf
    Change the following line:
    #LocalSocket /tmp/clamd.socket
    to this:
    LocalSocket /tmp/clamd
  • Run ldconfig to create the necessary links and cache to most recent shared libraries
    ldconfig
  • Run freshclam to download the latest definitions:
    freshclam
  • Note: The following will no longer work as ClamAV has decided not to include the init examples in their latest version. You will have to create your own init script to start clamd or download an old version of ClamAV (pre-v0.95) and get the init script from there.

    /bin/cp -fv contrib/init/RedHat/clamd /etc/init.d/clamd
    chown root:root /etc/init.d/clamd
    chmod +x /etc/init.d/clamd
    chkconfig clamd on
    service clamd restart
  • pico -w /etc/chkserv.d/clamav
    Add the following line:
    service[clamav]=x,x,x,service clamd restart,clamd,root
  • Create an empty log file for clamav updates:
    touch /var/log/clam-update.log
    chown clamav:clamav /var/log/clam-update.log
  • Add clamav to chkservd so that it will be monitored:
    pico -w /etc/chkserv.d/chkservd.conf
    clamav:1
