Can you try the scratch build at: 


and confirm it fixes this issue?

Comment 2 BK Box 2011-02-07 18:47:17 UTC
This bug is still present in the scratch build packages:

[FATAL] There is nothing to do here, since there are no nodes with any plugins.  Please refer to http://munin-monitoring.org/wiki/FAQ_no_graphs at /usr/share/munin/munin-html line 38

When I manually patch the Server.pm file, it runs fine after a munin-node restart:

# grep _list_services /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/Munin/Node/Server.pm
        _list_services($session, lc($1));
# service munin-node restart

Humf. I seem to have missed an important part of the patch. 



If that doesn't work, what _exact_ patch are you applying? ;)
