    Default Problem Installing Nessus

    Hi all - fresh install of BT on a USB key. I was following the instructions from the 'howto.' Everything is fine until I need to install Nessus. I dl the latest ubtu version.

    Upon running : dpkg --install Nessus-4.4.0-ubuntu1010_i386.deb
    I get the following output :

    Setting up nessus (4.4.0) ...
    /opt/nessus/sbin/nessus-mkcert: /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11' not found (required by /opt/nessus/sbin/nessus-mkcert)
    /opt/nessus/sbin/nessusd: /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11' not found (required by /opt/nessus/sbin/nessusd)

    It is worth noting, when I try to create a user, I basically get the same error:
    input : /opt/nessus/sbin/nessus-adduser
    output : /opt/nessus/sbin/nessus-adduser: /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11' not found (required by /opt/nessus/sbin/nessus-adduser)

    Other (possibly?) related information:

    Install was of BTR1
    I get the error message both before and after I run apt-get update/upgrade -- In the 'howto' it installs nessus before, but I figured I would go ahead and update just in case that would solve my problem, no dice

    Any takers? Thanks in advance -

    Raistlin

    This does not solve the problem.
    I also get the error when trying to run nessus and add-user
    nessusd: /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.11' not found (required by nessusd)

    Anyone got any ideas, there seems to be very little on other forums about this problem.

    thanks
