[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#505700: nagios-nrpe-server: Please create /etc/nagios/nrpe.d automatically

Package: nagios-nrpe-server
Version: 2.12-1
Severity: minor

After upgrading to 1.4.12-4, I end up with this in my system log:

Nov 14 12:09:14 scrooge nrpe[30492]: Could not open config directory '/etc/nagios/nrpe.d' for reading.
Nov 14 12:09:14 scrooge nrpe[30492]: Continuing with errors...
Nov 14 12:09:14 scrooge nrpe[30493]: Starting up daemon

A little bit untidy :-( And obviously logcheck picks up on it too.

This could probably mislead some (small proportion) of system administrators.

Could the package create that directory?

Adding /etc/nagios/nrpe.d to debian/dirs seems to do the trick:

--- /dev/null	2008-10-31 14:11:47.506102355 +0000
