    I have a RedHat 9. I download the sources of nessus 2.2.2 and i compiled the packages nessus-libraries and libnasl without problem. But in the compilation the package nessus-core, i received the error message:

    cd nessus-fetch && make
    make[1]: Entering directory `/root/nessus/nessus-core/nessus-fetch'

    Hi,

    The error is in bug list in Nessus site, with ID 1098. The nessus-installer script doesn't find ssl.h file. I achieved to install, altering the nessus-installer script and i added the /usr/include/openssl in PATH variable. This path is where the ssl.h stay. Then i ran sh nessus-installer.sh and instalation complete normally. Thanks Cameron Harr by important help.

    Very responsible of you Hacinn to provide the resolve of your dilemma. Thanks for sharing. :cool:

    I feel it's important for the primary help request to get back to the thread if a solution has been reached.
    Many threads go....unsolved, let alone a courtesy reply such as the one you provided.

    The gentleman you reference, did you locate him through FreshMeat?
