Hi all,

I tried to install openvas 4.0 on centos 5.5 following this:


*Step 1: Configure Atomicorp Repository*
(as user root, only once)

wget -q -O - http://www.atomicorp.com/installers/atomic |sh

*Step 2: Quick-Install OpenVAS*
(as user root, only once)

yum install openvas

*Step 3: Quick-Start OpenVAS*

( nothing to do, all is up and running directly after installation )

*Step 4: Log into OpenVAS with user created in the step 2


I did this but openvasmd isn't willing to start:

md   main:   INFO:2011-03-18 14h29.11 utc :1565:    Updating NVT cache.
md   main:WARNING:2011-03-18 14h35.00 utc :1565: sql: sqlite3_step
failed: database table is locked
md   main:CRITICAL:2011-03-18 14h35.00 utc :1565: handle_sigabrt: abort

Now i'm intrested as this is an fresh install (kickstarted it) of Centos
5.5 who wrote this howto and did this got tested? On what Centos version
should this work out-of-the-box whit the above commands?
