zenmap install on gutsy

Asked by peter b on 2007-11-24

I tried an install of zenmap 4-2.3 RC1. The package available is an rpm. It was successfully converted via alien to a deb package. However, when

sudo dpkg -i zenmap_4.23RC1-1_all.deb

was used to install it the following was obtained

(Reading database ... 160610 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking zenmap (from zenmap_4.23RC1-1_all.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing zenmap_4.23RC1-1_all.deb (--install):
 trying to overwrite `/usr/share/pixmaps/ubuntu.svg', which is also in package gnome-screensaver
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:
 zenmap_4.23RC1-1_all.deb

Does anyone have any idea as to how a successful install can be achieved?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Peter b

Could you explain what umit is? Sorry but I am UBUNTU and Linux newbie, but I`d be REALLY grateful if you could help

Thanks :)

take a look at this url

http://insecure.org/nmap/

it is self explanatory. nmap can be installed via synaptics ==> do a search for nmap and just install it. nmap is a command line utility. up until recently the front end was NmapFE; it has a limited functionality compared to the command line use. however, one would have to be pretty conversant with nmap to harness its full power. so the 'new kid on the block' so to speak is umit; more details about it can be had at

http://umit.sourceforge.net/

all in all, umit is a real help in making nmap power and use quite a bit easier. hope the above help.
