Description Daniel Webert 2004-10-30 21:26:17 UTC
nessus-plugins-update 2.2.0 does not work


nessus-plugins-update gives this output

porkoo ~ # nessus-update-plugins 
tar: Bad Option: -xf.
Usage:  tar cmd [options] file1 ... filen

Use     tar -help
and     tar -xhelp
to get a list of valid cmds and options.

Use     tar H=help
to get a list of valid archive header formats.

Use     tar diffopts=help
to get a list of valid diff options.
Something went wrong when installing the plugins - uncompressing the plugins archive failed

Hm. Sorry, I don't get this issue.

Comment 2 Daniel Webert 2004-12-03 20:19:46 UTC
the problem seems to be related to a parallel install of app-arch/(tar-1.14.90-r1) and app-arch/(star-1.5_alpha46) ... kicking 'app-arch/star' of the disk the nessus-update-plugins works fine ...

Comment 4 Daniel Black (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-12 00:40:43 UTC
I've added nessus-*-2.3.0 now please let me know if this fixes your problem.

If not I'll get around to this. Just got lots of other netmon bugs todo

Daniel - is a runtime block the only answer?
Comment 6 Daniel Black (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-25 04:56:56 UTC
