[Openvas-discuss] Segfault when starting OpenVAS

Hi there,
It's been a long time since I posted anything here but now I have a problem. I 
had a Debian "Lenny" on which OpenVAS was working fine. Then I upgraded to 
Debian "Squeeze" and forgot all about OpenVAS. Today morning, I did an nvt-
sync and started OpenVAS which gave me an error as below. 

rcws-vivek:/opt/openvas/sbin# ./openvasd 
Loading the OpenVAS plugins...[10125]() gpgme_new failed: User defined source 
1/Unknown error code
Segmentation fault

Looking into syslog gives:

Aug 24 10:27:45 rcws-vivek kernel: [84271.984456] openvasd[10182]: segfault at 
3c ip b76ec767 sp bf87afc0 error 4 in libgpgme.so.11.7.0[b76ce000+2c000]

Has anyone seen this before? Is there anything I can do or should I remove 
OpenVAS and install it again? Has anyone used OpenVAS on Squeeze?

Thanks for any help in advance.
