Package: nagios-mysql
Version: 2:1.4-1
Severity: grave

When I installed the package there wasn't mysql-server neither mysql-client
so the installation complaint about this missing packages. I stopped the
installation, installare the mysql packages then dpkg-reconfigure'd
nagios-mysql. When I started nagios it comoplaint about wrong host '',
user '' from '' with password "XXXXXX". After looking a little deeper in
config files, I noticed that the database.cfg is right but no included in
any other file, so I changed nagios.cfg, commented out the resources.cfg
line and inserted one referring to database.cfg and all worked fine. So, or
the reconfigure process (and the install ? don't know) move the database.cfg
to resource.cfg or have to change the nagios.cfg

I setted the severity to grave because a -mysql package unable to connect to
mysql database is pretty unuseful.

This is on a debian testing box.
