Latest source code release

If you are using a source code release please be aware that the installation process might copy files to places different from the ones expected by you or the distribution you are using. This may lead to unexpected results, especially if you install releases from different series or try to remove old copies of OpenVAS-Client if you are not careful. Because of this, we recommend that you configure the modules with a prefix (i.e. ./configure prefix=/opt/openvas) and use different prefixes for different series. This way you can easily isolate all the files belonging to this particular version of OpenVAS-Client; if you want to remove a specific OpenVAS-Client installation from you can simply remove the particular subdirectory.

Download the ".tar.gz" source code archive from the download section of the OpenVAS website and unpack with "tar -xzf openvas-client-N.N.N.tar.gz". Compiling from source is currently geared towards GNU/Linux systems, but may work as well in other environments.

Now read the README file inside the new directory for further instructions.
