Hi I am helping a friend install OpenVAS.  I am not a linux guru and cannot get these libraries installed via apt-get.

Can someone let me know that modules need to be installed?  

We get these errors:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:                                                                                
 greenbone-security-assistant : Depends: libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.31.8) but 2.24.2-1 is to be installed

What you are trying to install is asking for later versions of libraries than the system has. In the general case, those versions won't be available for that version of the OS. You could possibly build later versions from source but I suspect that will reveal other problems. The most sane solution is upgrading to a later OS version that has the libraries or finding a copy of OpenVAS meant for the version of the OS you are using.

you need a fix of broken dependencies first,

"sudo apt-get -f install"

Best,

OK some more information I totally forgot to post.

We are running Linux version 2.6.32-5-amd64 (Debian 2.6.32-48squeeze1) (dannf@debian.org) (gcc version 4.3.5 (Debian 4.3.5-4) ) #1 SMP Mon Feb
 25 00:26:11 UTC 2013  

I am trying to run this command for OpenVAS:
apt-get -y install greenbone-security-assistant openvas-cli openvas-manager openvas-scanner openvas-administrator sqlite3 xsltproc rsync

I tried the command above but the same output as before.

6 is an obsolete release (squeeze).

Try upgrade to 7 (wheezy), the packages needed by OpenVAS may not work on 6 anymore.
