    ubuntu, my nut.

    Hi boys and girls.. glad i joined this site, for some reason i think your not going to be so happy.. hahah
    I got an old system single core bla bla,, needs hole and a shovel but does me for my needs at the min.

    Now, i tried to install on unbuntu 10.04 Nessus, now i not new to pc,s but new to linux , and after what i can only call near 16 hours of trying to install this software my jack is breaking.
    Here,s what i done.. went and got the software, downloaded for 10.04, installed it. Then went to terminal to turn it on and give it the old command lines.. well its now working.
    I then went to the site and reg.. my key, and downloaded a lot of other files, manly plug ins, i dont know if they installed or not? but i got them.
    Then followed near every line in command, nothing working, then i read something about ROOT, and i thought.. thats me.. lol
    So i then set about trying to open this ROOT, and hey, turns out i not have root on my pc, so then i got it, downloaded it though the terminal, And i know some off you are laughing right now, and please carry on, cause i know i was close.. hahaha
    Bottom line is, Nessus and the commands, its doing nothing.

    Anyone throw some light my way??
    Thanks guys/ girls.
    Jamstir.

    My guess is he succeeded installing Ubuntu and probably Nessus, now he is trying to start Nessus and Nessus is not cooperating.

    Ubuntu was the easy one to install, been using it for near a year now for business, but this Nemuss as me in aright state. lol
    Any of the commands are not working, its like its not there.
    I get message telling me its a tempfile. Or wrong input command.
    I took it of and installed it again, once again i followed the book to the point of getting it started, its not doing jack.
    Anyone know why?

    I took it of this site,

    Re: ubuntu, my nut.

    Which one did you use? There's more than one on the website for Ubuntu, sometimes if you install the "wrong" one it will look like it has installed, but it won't work as well.
    Forum DOs and DON'Ts
    Never assume that information you find using a search engine is up-to-date.

    Re: ubuntu, my nut.

    How did you install it.
    Did you encounter any errors during install.

    When i downloaded it, i looked in the synaptic package manager, and it told me all was installed, i then tried though the terminal command to reg the key with no luck, i tried to start it, no luck. i then went back the site and reg the key manually, it then gave me plugins etc.
    I then done a rebot and went back to root to try and start it.

    One thing that could be stopping it, i am in China at the minute, but i do have a VPN and have tried with it on and with the VPN off, still no kick.

    Is there anything to go into the repositories??

    Alright, we need somebody looking over your shoulder or we need a working crystal ball (mine is broken).

    What command did you issue in terminal.

    What was the response, if any.

    hahha i thank you for taken the time to help, will try and pass all info.. ok.. commands.. i tried.

    # dpkg -i Nessus-4.4.0-ubuntu1010_i386.deb

    /opt/nessus/sbin/nessus-adduser

    nessus-fetch --security-center

    I get more just using sudo.. lol

    /opt/nessus/bin/nessus-fetch --register XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX with my code of course, but command codes from the nessus hand book, i get messages like.. command not found. Or Interpreter error recovered.. or tempfile.1.

    /opt/nessus/bin/nessus-fetch --register

    now the code commands i have tried with a # infront.. or without.. i have been all over this for hours.. i even tried other sites and other ways and still nothing.

    jam@jam-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install nessus nessusd
    [sudo] password for jam:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    nessus is already the newest version.
    nessus set to manually installed.
    Package nessusd is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    However the following packages replace it:
    nessus
    E: Package nessusd has no installation candidate
    jam@jam-desktop:~$ sudo nessus-adduser
    sudo: nessus-adduser: command not found
    jam@jam-desktop:~$
