Install the Nessus security auditing tool via Darwin Ports

You need neither fink nor darwinports to get Nessus running. Just install via source or use their scripted installer from their website.

Install the Nessus security auditing tool via Darwin Ports

Just install glib and gtk+ from http://www.gtk.org/ before you ./configure nessus.

I had to give the --host=apple-ppc option to ./configure for glib and gtk to make it recognize my system correctly. Everything else works straight out of the box.

Can't speak for DarwinPorts, but Fink's version of nessus is way out of date!

Well, this article didn't pop up on my search for instructions, and mine are different. You will probably find other articles describing the same instructions all over the place. In fact, I solved my problem by taking pieces of advice from several websites and Usenet posts that were related to similar programs. However, none of them, including the ones you link to, provided me with a complete solution that worked. I took everything together and put it into one post.

Some of the instructions are straight from the DarwinPorts documentation, which I link to.
