    Default installing OpenVAS

    Hey,

    include the following source into your /etc/apt/sources.list:

    deb http : / / apt[dot]intevation[dot]de/ lenny openvas

    This repository is not maintained from the BT team! If it breaks your system help yourself!

    Code:
    apt-get update
    apt-get install openvas-server openvas-plugins openvas-client libopenvasnasl1 libopenvas1 gpgsm
    basic configuration:
    Code:
    openvas-adduser
    openvas-mkcert
    openvas-nvt-sync
    edit your configuration file "/etc/openvas/openvasd.conf" and change the nasl_no_signature_check option to the following:
    Code:
    nasl_no_signature_check = yes
    now you can start the vulnerability scanner (openvasd)

    OH, I didn't see you added a repo to your source list to get that. I thought you were using the main repo. When you do that please be sure to include a disclaimer that we will not support that package here and if it breaks their sh*t its not our fault or backtracks fault.
