    Question Problem installing nessus on RH9


    OS: Redhat9

    I am having problem compiling nessus!

    [root@localhost nessus]# cd /root/tools
    [root@localhost tools]# chmod 777 nessus-installer.sh
    [root@localhost tools]# ./nessus-installer.sh

    Press ENTER to continue

    x - creating lock directory
    x - extracting nessus.tar.gz (binary)
    ./nessus-installer.sh: line 475: uudecode: command not found
    restore of nessus.tar.gz failed
    nessus.tar.gz: MD5 check failed
    x - now extracting this archive
    ./nessus-installer.sh: line 68888: nessus.tar.gz: No such file or directory
    tar: nessus.tar: Cannot open: No such file or directory
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    rm: cannot lstat `nessus.tar': No such file or directory
    rm: cannot lstat `nessus.tar.gz': No such file or directory
    *** Something went wrong - we could not uncompress the archives
    *** properly
    [root@localhost tools]#

    I thought my CD version was too old, so i downloaded a updated version form www.nessus.org

    [root@localhost nessus]# ./nessus-installer.sh
    The script needs uudecode(1) to run properly
    Install the package 'sharutils-*.rpm'
    [root@localhost nessus]#

    Please show me the easier way of instaling nessus .

    Why not just do a tar xzvf nessus*gz and then go cd nessus*. Once in the directory you can type ./configure && make && make install.
