I am a first-time Nagios user (2.10) and having trouble getting it running on my Gentoo Linux system. I have followed instructions on daniel.jp/joomla/info/gentoo … s-2.0.html to install and set up various configs.
My problem is that I cannot start up Nagios. I get the following message:

Reading configuration data…
***> One or more problems was encountered while processing the config files…
Check your configuration file(s) to ensure that they contain valid directives and data defintions. If you are upgrading from a previous version of Nagios, you should be aware that some variables/definitions may have been removed or modified in this version. Make sure to read the HTML documentation regarding the config files, as well as the 'Whats New' section to find out what has changed.[/code]
Searching on google I see that other people have had similar messages but with something more specific after “reading configuration data” such as a particular file, line number, etc. It’s not being so kind to me. I have no idea as to what the problem is, there is nothing obviously (to me) wrong in the file but as I said, I am new to this, and Nagios isn’t being terribly helpful with its vague complaint about “one or more problems”. Can anybody point me in the right direction please?
nagios.cfg file attached if that helps at all.
