Hello everyone.
Hoping to get a help on solution for my problem.

I dounloaded the latest release of tthe plugins nagios-plugins-1.4.11
and tying to install it.
when I am compilling the source I get this kind of error:

rm -f check_ftp
ln -s check_tcp check_ftp
ln: creating symbolic link check_ftp': Operation not supported make[2]: *** [check_ftp] Error 1 make[2]: Leaving directory/mnt/install/Nagios-3.0/nagios-plugins-1.4.11/plugins’
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/install/Nagios-3.0/nagios-plugins-1.4.11’
make: *** [all] Error 2

How do I solve this problem?
Thanks in advance.

Hi

Did you run ./configure with the appropriate user and group options first? The configure script would seem to check and make sure that ln-s is supported and if not, use cp -p as an alternative…
