The openvasmd service from openvas-manager-6.0.8_2 does not start correctly. It fails with a socket bind error (from openvasmd.log):
md main:WARNING:2016-04-12 17h58.17 utc :1744: Failed to bind manager socket: Invalid argument
This is on 10.3-RELEASE.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Start openvasmd service.
2. Note that service is not running.

Can you try this patch for security/openvas-manager?
This solved the issue. The service is now running and listening on the appropriate socket.

New revision: 413228
Add a patch to pass the size of struct sockaddr_in or sockaddr_in6 to
bind(2) instead of sockaddr_storage. It doesn't accept the latter even
though it's big enough.
