Thread: Nessus Installation on Opensuse 13.1

  1. #1

    Default Nessus Installation on Opensuse 13.1

    Hi,

    I can download Nessus for Suse 11 : Nessus-5.2.5-suse11.x86_64.rpm

    As an rpm - but this would be for Suse Enterprise.

    Will this work on OpenSuse 13.1 with a KDE graphical interface ?

    If it does - i assume i run the pm from the command line - or to ensure that it is integrated with KDE - are there any other aspects or procedures that need to be followed ??

    Thanks and regards,

    Shadders.

    It is strongly recommended only to install RPM files that are buildt specifically for you version of openSUSE. That
    being said it always *possible* that a binary package from another RPM distro may install correctly, but be prepared for
    dependency hell if you intend to try it - on the other it can go very smoothly.

    No idea. Shouldn't make a difference with desktop environment you use unless the program in question requires specific
    GUI libraries (e.g. GTK/Qt and friends).

    I would use something on the lines of...

    Code:
    sh-4.2$ su -
    sh-4.2$ zypper in ~/Downloads/Nessus-5.2.5-suse11.x86_64.rpm
    sh-4.2$ exit
    ....but YMMV.

    Hi,

    Tanks for the feedback - much appreciated.

    May search a bit more on the internet to see what issues others have had with specific distros. Ubuntu is supported - so perhaps the Enterprise SUse may work.

    Regards

    Shadders.
