Description Joel Uckelman 2011-01-16 14:02:06 EST
Description of problem:

According to the man page for collectd.conf, the collectd network plugin must be linked with libgcrypt in order to use authentication. Not using authentication is a potential security hole, but Fedora's collectd package is built without this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

collectd-4.9.4-1.fc14.x86_64

How reproducible:

Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ldd /usr/lib64/collectd/network.so | grep libgcrypt
  
Actual results:

Nothing.


Expected results:

libgcrypt should show up.
