Installing Nmap 7 RPMs on Centos/RHEL

by on Dec.05, 2015, under Uncategorized

According to the site, installation of Nmap 7.00 on a RPM-based system is this easy:

# rpm -vhU

However, on a CentOS/RHEL system, nmap fails to run, throwing the following error:

nmap: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Turns out that the Nmap RPM dynamically links to files provided by the Subversion package.  To get Nmap working, simply install it:

# yum -y install subversion

Nmap will now work properly.

# nmap -v
