Ocs agent failures on RHEL8/Alma Linux 8


I'm deploying ocs agent from epel rpm on Alma Linux 8 OS which is based on RHEL8 following the ocsinventory documentation. I have some trouble when executing the agent and many error messages:

[root@most6ltmb219 ~]# ocsinventory-agent

Datas are uploaded to the server but as the command is run with root privileges, all these messages are worrisome. Multipath is not setup but the software is a requiered dependancy for some virtualization tools.
Thanks for your advices

This is not an answer but an additionnal problem:
launching ocsinventory-agent on a C6100 server running Alma Linux 8.7 returns:

[root@ekman ~]# ocsinventory-agent -i -f
error: While opening repository /root/.local/share/flatpak/repo: opening repo: Invalid UTF-8
sh: line 1: 170829 Segmentation fault      (core dumped) monitor-get-edid-using-vbe --port 0 2> /dev/null

and the server crashes. sad

I'm using ocsinventory-agent-2.9.3-1.el8.x86_64 from from the rpm packaging.

Any suggestion is welcome.
