Package: nagios-pgsql
Version: 2:1.3-cvs.20050402-2.sarge.1
Severity: important

The check_nagios_db script supplied in /usr/share/doc/nagios-common/
gets its nagios configuration information from /etc/nagios/cgi.cfg
However, when called at boot time, it needs the parameters from

This causes nagios to fail on startup if different Postgres users are
used for the nagios daemon and the cgi scripts.

I suggest that this should be included in the patch in
/usr/share/doc/nagios-pgsql/README.pgsql.gz if it is pgsql-specific, or
amended in /usr/share/doc/nagios-common/check_nagios_db
