OpenVAS on Ubuntu not using IPv4

I installed the latest OpenVAS (Open Vulnerability Assessment Software) from source on an Ubuntu 9.10 server. No errors during compile.
Netstat shows it listening on the default port of tcp/9390, but it's listening for IPv6. I need it to listen for IPv4.
I've searched the source code to find 9390, but couldn't find anything obviously related to IP versions. Didn't find any related options during install.

Any ideas for getting OpenVAS going on IPv4?

TIA,

Hi,
   Openvas Daemon apparently has some switches which can be used to tweak the Ip Address it listens at. I found an online man page here - http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/jaunty/man8/openvasd.8.html

The parameters -a or --listen should do the trick.

I gave up on the source code and tried an ISO instead. Not ideal, but it works. I'll go back and figure out what I was missing some other day when I have more time.

Thanks for your input, guys!
