Summary0002250: The process stalls when running "openvasmd --progress --rebuild -v"
DescriptionWhen running sudo openvasmd --progress --rebuild -v after a fresh install of Kali Linux, the process seems to stall with this:

"Rebuilding NVT cache... /" the slash doesn't change (I know usually it animates with -/|\" and in the messages, I can see "md main: INFO:2015-04-30 19h42.31 utc:3937: Updating NVT cache."

I've left it for up to 3 hours multiple times and attempted to restart the progress by completely removing all of openvas from my system and then reinstalling, with no luck.

Process of uninstall is such:

apt-get purge openvas openvas-* ;
rm -fr /var/cache/openvas;
rm -fr /var/log/openvas;
rm -fr /var/lib/openvas;
apt-get autoremove;
apt-get install alien nsis rpm;
apt-get install openvas;
sudo openvas-setup
openvasmd --user=admin --new-password=<your password>.

Other fixes tried are running the following and repeating the rebuild procedure:

openvas-mkcert-client -n om -i
Steps To Reproduce1. Run openvas-setup
2. Review progress with tail -f /var/log/openvas/openvasmd.log
Additional InformationPlease find attached my openvasmd.log

Do you still experience the problem?

Are you sure that it's not a network problem on your side?

I can't reproduce this issue. openvas-setup works for me on a fresh setup.

Yeah it's all good now (I've installed Kali 2.0). It wasn't a network issue though. Definitely a weird one.

Thanks marking it as resolved then.
