I am having an issue trying to get the openvas-check-setup program to validate properly.

Right now, under 5R2, when I run ./openvas-check-setup, I get a warning that the NVT database is too small and to update it and rebuild the db. I perform an NVT sync after deleting tasks.db, then run openvasmd --rebuild as directed through several google searches, but the error never clears. Has anyone been successful in getting this setup on 5 R2?
