Pandora FMS 2.1.1 deb packages

Good news everyone!

After too much time without news about the deb packages, we finally have them! However, we will just publish them here for a while, hoping people will test them, and then we will upload them to sourceforge:

These are the specific packages for Pandora FMS. Besides, you will need other packages that we also provide:

We hope to provide a deb URI to add to your deb sources so you won’t need to install the packages with dpkg but with apt-get ;)

In a week or so, if no bugs will be reported, we will publish the packages as official debs for Pandora FMS 2.1.1.

After installing the packages and their dependencies, you will have to manually load Pandora FMS servers and agent daemon, or restart the machine. The web console is located at http://localhost/pandora_console/

Thanks a lot to mariodebian for his work with these packages and his lecture about debian and deb packages.

    Hi,I am installing your debs on a Debian lenny installation. I have a few comments:1) debian doesn't have a wmi-client package. Maybe you can provide one from pandora? I now solved the problem by fetching a package from ubuntu. I dont know if this will get me into trouble later on....2) I got an error when installing the pandora-server package. When dpkg -i i got the following errors:Creating home directory `/var/lib/pandora' ... chown: cannot access `/var/spool/pandora/data_out': No such file or directory chmod: cannot access `/var/spool/pandora/data_out': No such file or directory chown: cannot access `/var/spool/pandora/data_out': No such file or directory chmod: cannot access `/var/spool/pandora/data_out': No such file or directoryand*** WARNING: ucf was run from a maintainer script that uses debconf, but the script did not pass --debconf-ok to ucf. The maintainer script should be fixed to not stop debconf before calling ucf, and pass it this parameter. For now, ucf will revert to using old-style, non-debconf prompting. Ugh!Please inform the package maintainer about this problem.I'll continue my installation with pandora-console and pandora-agent on the local system. Keep up the good work guys!Regards,Brenno.

    Next problem with pandorafms-console. This package wants php-xmlrpc but the new Debian Lenny has php5-xmlrpc as package.Installation of the pandora-console package on Debian lenny is failing due to this problem. Regards,brenno.

  3. Hi Brenno,and thank you very much for trying the packages. I've noticed there is a new package for php-xmlrpc, I'll fix that ASAP.But perhaps debian/ubuntu specific problems may not be solved since we intend to support Ubuntu Hardy LTS and use it for Pandora FMS. However, providing wmi-client deb package would not be a problem.I'll let you know about further updates.Thanks again!

    Hi Aloriel,Many thanks for your update. The php-xmlrpc is really a showstopper at the moment... If you have the new package, please let me know!Brenno.

    Hi again Brenno,I rebuilt the packages but after that I realised that php-xmlrpc and php5-xmlrpc is not the same package, we provide PEAR XML-RPC but the debian/ubuntu package does not. Therefore you have to use ours.I just installed it using debian lenny and it works quite fine, may you try with our php-xmlrpc package and tell me about it, pelase?

    Aloriel,Thanks for the support. I've installed all the stuff now. Unfortunately I couldn't install your version of wmi-client because I am running pandora on a 64bit installation.Regards,brenno.

  7. Brenno: sorry, I didn't take 64bits into account, now I already added it.Thank you, if you have any other issue, let me know.
