Description Rosco 2011-08-31 11:18:56 UTC
Description of problem:

After the recent update, Munin sends email messages to the admin every 5 minutes with the title:

"Cron <munin@hostname> test -x /usr/bin/munin-cron && /usr/bin/munin-cron"

and the body explaining that munin-update didn't find the /etc/munin/munin-conf.d folder. "no such file or directory" 

It was not the case before the last week update.

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

How reproducible:
update munin to the latest version from EPEL and start it. Wait for the emails to come.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install munin
2. /etc/init.d/munin-node start
3. wait for munin to start scanning
Actual results:
a flood of email messages 1 every 5 minutes for every host running munin.

Expected results:
no email messages

Additional info:
The folder scanned doesn't exist on a default installation. I think the folder scanned by the munin-update script should be called /etc/munin/conf.d instead of /etc/munin/munin-conf.d
I've create an empty folder /etc/munin/munin-conf.d and the spam stopped.

Sorry for the delay. 

Can you try: 


and see if it fixes the issue for you?

Comment 2 Rosco 2011-09-12 09:59:16 UTC
Thanks for the fix, it seems to be working now. On a machine that had no munin installed and on a machine where I updated from 1.4.6-3.
