Openvas install broken dependencies

Unread post by pogito »

Tried to install openvas after adding atomic repo. A few months ago I installed and everything worked. Trying to rebuild a new server for testing and it seems like Im getting an error for dependencies. Anything happen from last month till now?

---> Package gvm-tools.noarch will be installed

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Centos 7 (minimal iso)

Thanks in advance

That gvm-tools package is planned for a newer release, on el7 it gets complicated because of the python 3 dependencies. Its disabled in the EL7 (centos/rhel) repos and active in the Fedora ones. The update on your platform is:


All this is fixable on EL7, we just need to get some of the python34 libraries built up for Centos/RHEL to support it.
