ok, this is right I suppose. I'm sorry I can't provide you with the
complaint 'cause I installed just one time and left the server in the
customer's office, so I can't connect to it anymore.

I understand, I love manual intervention ;)

Well...I think it's not a must to add mysql-server dependencie, ppl can add
it after the installation if needed, but when someone install the server and
dpkg-reconfigure the package he believe that all is right configured, while
it's not. As I said, the dpkg-reconfigure creates a file called database.cfg
that is not included/used in any file. I had to change the nagios.cfg
manually and comment out the resources.cfg and include the new database.cfg
file. I think solutions, if you can reproduce the error, go from the prompt
of manually check the config to write out the databse config in the
resources.cfg file instead of the database.cfg.

I hope my description is clear, my english surely not :)


Bye Enrico
