Whit, I do have OpenVAS working on Ubuntu 12.04. Two points. It is
true that for Greenbone Security Assistant (the web UI) I'm only
running it on HTTP only mode, no TLS. However, my OpenVAS is still
using the gnutls for internal communication. And I am doing scans,

What UI are you trying to use? I only have experience with GSA.

And are you using OpenVAS 5 downloaded after August 3?
