For a Nagios installation on solaris I use the following packages:
There was a serious problem on a
SunOS sb01958a 5.10 Generic_118833-33 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V245
To reduce impact of the installation, we want to recompile the main packages and drop those not needed.
But I don’t know which packages I can drop and even don’t know how to find out what packages I could drop.
What packages can I drop when I recompile nagios, apache, etc.
How can I find out what nagios really needs?
If I do NOT compile on that particular platform (for developing I do not have the above solaris version!), do I really solve the problems with the above version or is it essential to compile on the exact OS where I will install nagios (I truly expect your clearvoyant…)?
I s there an alternative to apache2 that demands less packages.
Instead of installing from pre-compiled packages, I could always compile the stuff on the target machine during installation. Would this approach be safer and can it be done by a script with minimal user interaction? pros/cons for this approach?
thanks a lot!
