    Default openvas: does anyone have this working?

    So I am following the directions, I have installed openvas-cli,scanner,manager, and just about anything else I can find.
    I have used the install page: https://software.opensuse.org/downlo...ge=openvas-cli, I have installed from the repositories directly.

    all the stuff I can find is installed.
    and I get the idea that I should run openvas-setup.
    Ran that.


    End of run:
    Failed to start openvas-administrator.service: Unit openvas-administrator.service not found.
    Failed to start greenbone-security-assistant.service: Unit greenbone-security-assistant.service not found.
    /usr/sbin/openvas-setup: line 19: openvasad: command not found

    I don't have an openvas-administrator package installed.
    There isn't an openvas-administrator package I can find.
    so I don't have a openvasad executable.
    pointless to try to go to http://localhost:9392

    is this stuff hiding somewhere I am unaware of, has it not been built yet for suse,
    I am told to login as admin [default password: admin]
    nope can't go there.

    obviously I am looking in all the wrong places, ok. Give me some guidance, where are the good places?

    [e-mail address removed, do you really want to invite spam?]

    I am setting up a security lab here, it would be nice to use native tumbleweed instead of Kali under a v-box or kvm.

    Help?

    Sincerely,
    tob

    Default Re: openvas: does anyone have this working?

    Been awhile since I've installed from the openSUSE repos (The current one I run is in my Kali install)

    Try installing the following, then opening up the appropriate website (see documentation)
    https://software.opensuse.org/packag...term=greenbone

    Post again if you can't figure it out,
    It might be good practice for me to install from the OSS as well...

    And yeah, I remember 'way back when, when I noticed that not all the necessary openvas components were named "openvas"
