I've since found that it's actually OpenVAS-Client, which was a bit
I still have the problem related to the bug that was fixed recently with
regards to the command line client not being able to work without X. Here's
a link to the discussion:
I'm not having much success with the compiling, so does anyone happen to
have a compiled version of the version that includes that bug fix for
fedora/i686? If not, that's okay - I'll keep toying with it.

I was using everything as it came from the rpm available, but I'll certainly
check this out.
Thanks for the tips. My timeline for a release of the VM is early
September, so I'll definitely keep you informed on how it's going.
