GVM-10 (beta) installation fails

I am trying to install GVM-10 (beta) from source but see the following output when going to build the scanner:

root@gvm:/…/openvas-scanner-6.0-beta2/build# make

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I suppose you didn’t build against the new gvm-libs beta release.

You are right. I somehow mixed up beta1 and beta2 releases and using the correct ones helped to solve the issue.

I have not seen any announcement with regards to GVM-10 beta2 being released as in the past on mailing lists. Is there anything comparable in this community?


This is currently in state of flux. We haven’t defined or discussed a process about announcements yet. The releases from last week have been a bit spontaneously too. Most of the time I am creating a short message at twitter but that’s not an official announcement channel. Also the GVM-10 (beta) topic is updated.
