This is a backport by me to install/build on a woody system.
There is NO changes to the package exept:
* Lower build depends to build on woody:
- libmysqlclient12-dev => libmysqlclient10-dev
- debhelper 4.2.21 => 4.0.2
- libpng12-dev => libpng2-dev
* Add libgd-noxpm-dev as build depends (as an or to libgd2-xpm-dev
I know that the informantion is in the readme, I can (and have)
done this myself right now. But I it would have been nice if this
was already done...
Also, the readme doesn't state that the resulting file (after
the copy and patching) should be made executable. Obvious after
the following message but still:
bash: /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_nagios_db: /usr/bin/perl: bad interpreter: Permission denied
The readme file states that /etc/nagios/nagios.cgi should be edited
to add the nagios_check_command statement. But it seems that it should
be the cgi.cfg file:
aurora:/usr/share/doc/nagios-pgsql# grep nagios_check_command /etc/nagios/*
/etc/nagios/cgi.cfg:#nagios_check_command=/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_nagios /var/log/nagios/status.log 5 'nagios'
Note that the command THERE is '/etc/nagios/check_nagios_db', NOT
the stated '/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_nagios_db'. The former location
is a must (init script etc uses this - which is wrong in it self, it
should extract the 'nagios_check_command' option if set from the config).
The readme states that one should test the new script, but first time
Nagios problem: no process identifier found in the database
Database handle destroyed without explicit disconnect.
Also, it's not possible to restart nagios. It segfaults after the
configuration changes. I'll have to dig deeper (I've forgot :) on
why this is happening.
PS: I'm putting this bug as 'important' because I really feel that if there IS
documentation, it _MUST_ be correct. Sure, _I_ can work around it - I have
that experience, but this time I failed and can't fix it immediately... :)
