I am trying to set up a Nagios agent on a RedHat Linux Enterprise Box (AS 4),
upon doing so I am getting the following error:

Warning: nagios-plugins-1.4-2.2.el4.rf.x86_64.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 6b8d79e6
error: Failed dependencies:
perl(Net::SNMP) is needed by nagios-plugins-1.4-2.2.el4.rf.x86_64
fping is needed by nagios-plugins-1.4-2.2.el4.rf.x86_64

Any assistance on getting this set up/diagnose of the error message would be appreciated.




for the “perl(Net::SNMP) is needed by nagios-plugins-1.4-2.2.el4.rf.x86_64”, it means you must have the perl SNMP library installed on your system…
you may find it here: … et/

for “fping”, I don’t know.

But anyway, if you don’t need these plug ins, you’d better try to NOT install them (by fiddling with the options).
Or also, don’t bother with the rpm package, and get the .tar.gz source and compile them ^^

I hope this helped you a bit.
Don’t hesitate to post again if you still have difficulties.
