[Pkg-net-snmp-devel] Bug#746399: snmpd: Typo in config file - line 53: Error: Name or service not known

Package: snmpd
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

on startup snmpd complains about an error in the config file:

  /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf: line 53: Error: Name or service not known

The reason is a typo ("defalut" instead of "default"):

  rocommunity6 public  defalut   -V systemonly

There are also two warnings on startup:

  /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf: line 145: Warning: Unknown token: defaultMonitors.
  /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf: line 147: Warning: Unknown token: linkUpDownNotifications.

Not sure if they have any relevance.
