Re: Compiling nmap on Red Hat

To install the RPM you need to have the subversion RPM installed. One of
the ways to deal with dependencies like that - as transparently as possible
- is:

wget http://nmap.org/dist/nmap-6.00-1.i386.rpm
sudo yum install nmap-6.00-1.i386.rpm

If your are bent on recompiling nmap on your local system, you should get
the source rpm (http://nmap.org/dist/nmap-6.00-1.src.rpm). There are plenty
of tutorials out there for rebuilding RPMs from the source RPM.

BTW subversion is required for nmap-update. The RPM dependency is specified
in the nmap.spec file as follows:

# nmap-update subpackage
%package -n nmap-update
Summary: Nmap's updater
Group: Applications/System

Requires: subversion
BuildRequires: subversion-devel

%description -n nmap-update
nmap-update gets the latest versions of architecture-independent
files, such as scripts and databases, for the installed version
of Nmap.
