I have Greenbone and OpenVAS installed on a Fedora machine. Configuration was OK and everything was working fine.
After a reboot every attempt to start a task results in the browser waiting forever for answer (with no effect: no task is started)
I nothing in the log files and
openvas-check-setup shows no problems
