[Openvas-discuss] Updated to 4.0, Now Issues

Did you remove the old version of SQLlite? 


I could not find a compatible version of sqlite, and instead of building
from source I found a src rpm and rebuild it on my CentOS 5.5 system. Here
is what I did:

I found the src rpm for sqlite 3.5.9-1 from the Fedora 9 repository

I rebuilt it on my CentOS 5.5 server using this command:  # rpmbuild
-rebuild sqlite-3.5.9-1.fc9.src.rpm

Then I upgraded the existing sqlite by running # rpm -Uvh 


If you haven't rebuilt rpm's before, there are instructions here:



This is the src rpm that I used (web page with description, download link
contained on this page):

I did a fresh install with CentOS 5.5 using the Atomic packages and now I
can't get the openvas-manager service to launch. It appears to be related to
sqlite database table locks:

md   main:WARNING:2011-03-18 17h42.45 utc :4590: sql: sqlite3_step failed:
database table is locked

md   main:CRITICAL:2011-03-18 17h42.45 utc :4590: handle_sigabrt: abort

md   main:CRITICAL:2011-03-18 17h42.57 utc :4622: main: database must be
initialised (with --update or --rebuild)

I've rebuilt 'til I'm blue in the face and the issue remains.

I have sqlite (latest release) installed and the /opt/sqlite/lib path

Alicia Smith reported the same issue.  This is what I responded:

    Strange that this assertion is failing.  Works OK here on Debian.  It's

        g_assert_cmpstr (*description, ==, NULL);

    and description looks like it will always have a value.  Maybe something
    do with the glib version on CentOS?


        g_assert (*description == NULL);

    or just removing the assertion might work, if you are able to recompile.
