Installation Problems


#1

Hi

Wonder if you could point me in the right direction, recently installed Red Hat 6.2 and looking to deploy nagios 2.0b3 to monitor our company’s servers.

I ran the ./configure and looked as though it completed successfully.

but when I go to ‘make all’ the following error occurs

[size=75][root@monitor base]# make all
gcc -g -O2 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -DNSCORE -c -o broker.o broker.c
In file included from …/include/nebmods.h:32,
from broker.c:34:
…/include/nebmodules.h:78: parse error before lt_ptr' ../include/nebmodules.h:78: warning: no semicolon at end of struct or union ../include/nebmodules.h:79: warning: data definition has no type or storage class ../include/nebmodules.h:89: parse error before}’
…/include/nebmodules.h:89: warning: data definition has no type or storage class
In file included from broker.c:34:
…/include/nebmods.h:51: parse error before *' ../include/nebmods.h:54: parse error before*'
make: *** [broker.o] Error 1
[root@monitor base]#[/size]

I am a total *nix newb and not sure if this error is OS related.

try rechecking the configure output…
If you recently installed RH6.2… isn’t that a bit old?

no further ideas. sorry.

#5

well an idea is there…
gcc could be too old… if it’s the default RH6.2 one.

My suggestion is to not use the beta nagios. Unless of course, you want lots of little troubles. If you can install 1.2, and you get bored, then try the beta nagios.
