Installing OpenVAS on Ubuntu

This post is not related to Perl, but I figured it may be helpful to anyone seeking to run OpenVAS on an Ubuntu system.  When trying to install OpenVAS on an Ubuntu 11.10 system, I found the documentation for how to set it up to be pretty sparse.  Here is the series of commands I used to get OpenVAS to install:

sudo apt-get install openvas-client
sudo apt-get install openvas-server
sudo openvas-adduser
sudo openvas-nvt-sync
sudo openvasd
