[Openvas-discuss] Updated to 4.0, Now Issues

I did not remove the old version due to dependencies. So I reoved my /opt/sqlite 
directory and all the references to /opt/sqlite/lib, and rebooted.

I then followed your instructions and upgraded sqlite3. Btw, thanks very much 
for this!!

I rebooted and still nothing, so I did the openvasmd --rebuild and now the 
openvas-manager service starts. Cool.

One remaining problem: After logging into the Greenbone Security Assistant, if I 
click on "NVT Feed" I receive a "Internal error: get_feed_oap:765" error.

This is an error I reported earlier. In openvasad.log you see:

file /builddir/build/BUILD/openvas-administrator-1.1.1/src/admin.c: line 921 
(openvas_get_sync_script_description): assertion failed: (*description)

That's a bug, seems to me.

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 
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 
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

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 exported.

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 to
    do with the glib version on CentOS?


        g_assert (*description == NULL);

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