Hi All,

I was trying to install the OpenVAS by downloading the souce code from

But While installing the libraries source package, it stops at make
configuration step by giving error:

/usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib/libgnutls.a(record.o): relocation R_X86_64_32
against `.rodata' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile
with -fPIC
/usr/local/lib/libgnutls.a: error adding symbols: Bad value
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
misc/CMakeFiles/openvas_misc_shared.dir/build.make:537: recipe for target
'misc/libopenvas_misc.so.9.0.1' failed
make[2]: *** [misc/libopenvas_misc.so.9.0.1] Error 1
CMakeFiles/Makefile2:245: recipe for target
'misc/CMakeFiles/openvas_misc_shared.dir/all' failed
make[1]: *** [misc/CMakeFiles/openvas_misc_shared.dir/all] Error 2
Makefile:160: recipe for target 'all' failed
make: *** [all] Error 2

Can anyone help me to fix this issue. I searched online also. But not of
much help.
