Actually, Atomic's openvas repo is a no-go app. Problem with
openvas-nvt-sync script is easy to resolve: setup a path for NVT_PATH option
under /etc/sysconfig/openvas-scanner.

But, after you update NVT, openvas-scanner doesn't works. Why??
Because it is compiled against Openvas-6 libraries, but as you can see,
atomic's repo installs openvas-7 libraries. And you can't change this also
because openvas-manager is compiled against openvas-7 libraries. Result?
Atomic's openvas packages doesn't works under CentOS 6.5 x86_64 ...

I don't know others, but every time I had tried to use some package from
Atomic's repo, I have had many problems ....
