I just installed the OpenVAS vulnerability scanner on my CentOS 7
workstation. Everything seems to work fine, except PDF generation. The
‘openvas-check-setup’ script tells me that PDF generation works fine, but whenever I want to generate a report, the result is unusable and can’t open in Evince or Okular.
After googling a bit, I found out that several users complained that Tex Live is broken under RHEL/CentOS 7.
While I did use LaTeX a long time ago to write documents, I don’t use it anymore nowadays (just Markdown or LibreOffice). But I do need a working installation of TeX Live for OpenVAS PDF reports.
What can I do now? Perform a manual installation of TeX Live with their provided installer (to /opt) and then blacklist all texlive* packages? I
admit I’m a bit surprised that a distribution like RHEL/CentOS that prises quality wouldn’t provide a working TeX Live in their package repositories.
