Comment 1 Dawid Gajownik 2006-02-24 09:57:00 EST
I've been playing with nessus some time ago. You may want to take a look at my
patches and spec files → http://fedora.pl/~gajownik/nessus/ 

IIRC nessus-plugins was not finished -- after one week of patching I was fed up ;-)
Comment 2 Andreas Bierfert 2006-02-24 10:47:14 EST
Thanks for posting... I will take a look and see what I can use/integrate if you
don't mind :)

Shure. That's the reason why I gave you link to these patches :)
Comment 4 Andreas Bierfert 2006-02-24 11:22:31 EST
Ok here are the first tuneups :) Thanks again =)

Comment 5 John Mahowald 2006-03-04 12:48:15 EST
Why disable libpcap? It's already a BuildRequirement even.

And $RPM_BUILD_ROOT not consistent.

Otherwise looks good.

> Why disable libpcap?

./configure --help


  --enable-nessuspcap     use the libpcap that comes with this package

Well, `--disable-nessuspcap' forces nessus-libraries to use system libpcap,
which is a Good Thing™ ;-)
Comment 8 Andreas Bierfert 2006-03-07 04:18:24 EST
Will fix the buildroot stuff. As for the libpcap Dawid is right. I'd rather use
the system one.

Any other comments?
Comment 9 John Mahowald 2006-03-13 20:32:02 EST
Oh, I assumed the opposite for --disble-nessuspcap
