You need subversion to retrieve the code:

$ svn checkout
https://svn.wald.intevation.org/svn/openvas/trunk/openvas-libraries
$ svn checkout https://svn.wald.intevation.org/svn/openvas/trunk/openvas-libnasl
$ svn checkout https://svn.wald.intevation.org/svn/openvas/trunk/openvas-server
$ svn checkout https://svn.wald.intevation.org/svn/openvas/trunk/openvas-plugins

Now read the file INSTALL_README inside the directory "openvas-libraries" for the next steps.

Repeat for each module and read the corresponding INSTALL or README files.

Alternatively, you can also download from toplevel trunk and take advantage of some of our build scripts:

$ svn checkout
https://svn.wald.intevation.org/svn/openvas/trunk

In the trunk directory you will find a subdirectory called tools. There are two handy build scripts: build-openvas.sh and build-svn-openvas.sh.

The build-openvas.sh script will download the latest released versions of OpenVAS modules and attempt to build and install them. This will result in a stable install.

The build-svn-openvash.sh script will attempt to build the latest SVN code and install it. This tool assumes the code in your SVN working directory is the lastest code available, if it is not, you must update it manually via svn. This will result in the latest build available, but may not be stable.

Although the OpenVAS team is committed to maintaining a high code quality, please be aware that you are using a development state that may be incomplete and unstable and should not be used in production environments.
