• Just installed squid and running the cache proxy on defaults.  and enabled the clamav, but going into services/status clamd is showing off.

    following another thread by which I type in "freshclam" in command prompt the following messages appear and then I try to start the clamd service, it still doesn't start.  help please. thanks

    running pfsense 2.3.2 nanobsd

    If your AV definitions cannot be downloaded/saved, then it won't ever run. (On that note, you'll have a very miserable experience with this unless you upgrade to 2.3.3 snapshots, because otherwise the AV defs will be gone after every reboot.)

  • hmm, is the mirror down or something?  I used a EU mirror tried GB mirror and it is the same result.

    is the issue of saving AV def inherently linked to the fact that I am running nanobsd?

    would it be better if i migrate the system to HDD?

    In general, yes, you would be a whole lot better off dropping the nanobsd altogether.  And no, I don't think it's a mirror down.

    Can't write 1440 bytes to /var/db/clamav...

    suggests the ramdisk is full or whatever other fluke related to nanobsd is happening.
