As you can see, when updating the virus database, it writes the following record to the freshclam.log with the warning that my clama was outdated and that I'd need version 0.88.2. But that is the one I have installed!

Did you perhaps install ClamAV once from source and later install via yum? If you do that, you have an old version in /usr/local/bin and a new version in /usr/bin, and Clam sees the old version an panics. Fully removing the old installation should resolve the problem in this case. (I did this about a year ago myself...)

Actually, you do not have 0.88.2 installed -- you have 0.88 installed. "2.fc5" is not part of the version tag, but rather the release tag. If you're unsure which is which, you can always use rpm -qi which shows more detailed information, and shows the version and release separately.

Thanks for the hints. I re-installed it and now I got the right version
