|0007279||Kali Linux||[All Projects] Kali Package Bug||public||2021-08-08 11:04||2021-08-23 12:20|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||2021.3|
|Summary||0007279: gvm - script "gvm-check-setup" version problem|
|Description||Dear maintrainers, |
I believe, there is a little bug at Step 6 in the script "gvm-check-setup" of package gvm.
Please take a look at the last output:
----- snip -------------------
OK: At least one user exists.
Step 6: Checking Greenbone Security Assistant (GSA) ...
Oops, secure memory pool already initialized
ERROR: Greenbone Security Assistant too old or too new: 21.4.1~dev1
FIX: Please install Greenbone Security Assistant >= 21.04.
ERROR: Your GVM-21.4.1 installation is not yet complete!
Please follow the instructions marked with FIX above and run this
--------- snap ---------------
As you see, I have installed version 21.4, which is (as recommended) higher or equal than 21.04 .
If I am not wrong, this should work.
dpkg -s greenbone-security-assistant | grep Version
Maybe I am not correctly understanding the versionary structure, but 21.4. shoud be the same as 21.04, isn't it?
A workaround is, just to comment Step 6 out, when you are sure, you have installed the correct version of greenbone-security-assistant.
Just a minor issue, but maybe you might want to fix it though.
||See https://community.greenbone.net/t/gsa-is-too-old-or-too-new-error/9558/8. Can you try it and tell me if it solves the issue?|
This worked. Already thought, this is just a typo and in the meantime, found already the solution. However, if a solution is working for me, this does not mean,
it will work for others.
So it is best, if the change in the script will be added in the next version, so everybody can easily update.
I suggest, if you just fix this little typo and build a new package, this little issue is solved and can safely be closed.
For those, who just do not want to wait, here is the fix from the community blog:
sed -i"" 's/GSA_MAJOR="21.04"/GSA_MAJOR="21.4"/g' $(which gvm-check-setup)
Thanks for the fast help!
||fixed in gvm version 220.127.116.11~0kali1|
