The new file hoster links dies too soon. The problem is that the rpm file can't be downloaded automatically from Teenable, so I must download it manually and then upload it on a file hoster. I'm looking for a free file hoster, with direct/hot link, a file upload around 100MB, no captcha and a file retention superior than 30 days.

I've orphaned this because I'm no longer interested in it. OpenVAS is pretty much on par with Nessus but it's FOSS + I maintain it in the official repositories now.

@mzimmerman: I know, but I was waiting to see what they were planning on doing about 32-bit support. I'll just drop it from the package and someone else can maintain nessus5 if they care.

This PKGBUILD seems to work great for me. No real changes required to get to 6.x series

6.10 is out

@quorra I was just able to dl 5.2.7 by right clicking on the "I agree" button on the download popup, copying the url for the button and pasting it into my address bar- changing the part of the url to version 5.2.7 where it says 5.2.6

I can't seem to find where to download 5.2.7.
On Tenable, I choose "Home Use Download" and then I go to "Linux" and all that is there are *5.2.6* versions. I tried changing the pkgbuild to 5.2.6 instead of 5.2.7 but it then failed a sig check. Worth a try, though unlikely...
It would be great to get this installed as I don't want to have to install it in a virtual environment on a different linux flavor. Arch Linux rocks ^_^

@Tim: The PKGBUILD explains where to get the rpm.

==> ERROR: Nessus-5.2.6-fc16.x86_64.rpm was not found in the build directory and is not a URL.

5.2.6 is up. MD5 is d4501fe8ddb565ea0c1393b89f6be273

Nessus version 5.2.5 is up at

I tried building it with only a version and md5sum update, but it gave me this error:
"cp: cannot stat ‘opt/nessus/man’: No such file or directory"

Turns out that version 5.2.5 doesn't have man pages (or at least not where they were before) so removing that line make it work. A reboot was required for the $PATH to update.

A possible fix would be to have the cp command fail silently so that if man pages are ever included in the future no change will be necessary.
