Comment 1 Stephen John Smoogen 2017-07-14 17:25:00 UTC
Confirmed that something is not right with F26 vs F25/EPEL

Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2017-07-14 18:57:27 UTC
nagios-plugins-2.2.1-4git.fc26 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 26. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2017-c2e82de3b3

Comment 3 Stephen John Smoogen 2017-07-14 19:46:51 UTC
Please test the version above. The problem was that the f26 mockbuild needed extra packages for ping, uptime and ps to be used.

Comment 4 Gerhard Wiesinger 2017-07-15 07:44:09 UTC
Great, works well well, ready to release! :-)

Comment 5 Gerhard Wiesinger 2017-07-15 07:46:15 UTC
BTW: Any plans to improve QA in the future (e.g. nagios test server)?

Comment 6 Stephen John Smoogen 2017-07-15 15:45:39 UTC
Most of the people using Nagios are on RHEL-6/7 so most of my focus has been on the EPEL branches and making them work as best as possible. The feedback I have gotten on recent Fedora releases has been 2 people (you and one other but there may be a third I am forgetting. The other fedora feedback I got was for EOL releases still being used) so I mostly rely on the Fedora Infrastructure clients to be the test bed. [This also means that bodhi updates never get enough karma to get pushed out without me pushing through.]

My plan will be to make sure that F27 boxes are deployed into Fedora Infrastructure starting around Beta time so I can make sure this doesn't happen again. Beyond that I need assistance from users as this is my spare time job at Red Hat.

You can add me to the informal list of Fedora Nagios users :-).

I have validated the 2.2.1-4git.fc26 RPMS from updates-testing and they work great for me.  Thanks for your continued contributions!

Comment 9 Fedora Update System 2017-08-03 15:52:24 UTC
nagios-plugins-2.2.1-4git.fc26 has been pushed to the Fedora 26 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
