I’m new to Greenbone systems. I’m just extremely frustrated that there isn’t a how-to anywhere that helps set up gvm-11 on Ubuntu 18.04/20.04, etc. The closest thing to a working how-to is: https://kifarunix.com/install-and-setup-gvm-11-on-ubuntu-20-04/ but it just doesn’t fix the socket issue. BRicks is a champion, trying his best to resolve all the issues that pop up but getting a decent how-to that actually works is non existent.
I’m not a developer and many of these how-to’s expect you to be one to understand compiling, etc and many of the fixes expects you to know a little coding. I’m sure that many people, including myself with no experience with these systems, have been thrust into getting OpenVAS / GVM to work and find it extremely intimidating.
I have tried many of these how-to’s out there but it just doesn’t work and then you get people who post fixes I’m sure many people out there would 1st want to test with the free version (GVM) before actually wanting to invest in a very expensive and supported system.
I’m sorry if I stepped on people’s toes but it’s so very frustrating!
