Description Paul Wouters 2006-02-04 19:48:44 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
nagios.cfg got saved as nagios.cfg.rpmsave, but no new nagios.cfg was installed, only nagios.cfg.sample.
It should instead write a nagios.cfg.rpmnew file and leave the nagios.cfg file alone.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install nagios
2.upgrade nagios

Can't open perl script "/usr/bin/p1.pl": No such file or directory

Hey Paul, what version did you upgrade from and where did you get it?
Comment 4 Paul Wouters 2006-02-05 12:15:16 EST
not sure which version it was, but it was yours as linked on the Fedora Extras list.
Comment 5 Mike McGrath 2006-02-05 13:19:08 EST
My version doesn't actually create any config files, only the samples.  By
upgrading from a Nagios package that had nagios.cfg to my package that only has
nagios.cfg-sample the nagios.cfg and other such *.cfg's were uninstalled by the
previous package (which would have been from some other repository).  Future
upgrades from my package to my package won't cause this problem.  In fact I
submitted an update yesterday (updates for Apache configs for Nagios) that we
can verify this against.
Comment 6 Mike McGrath 2006-02-05 13:21:04 EST
Forgot about the p1.pl part of this but, I'll be looking into that.
Comment 7 Mike McGrath 2006-02-05 13:23:25 EST
My package has this in /usr/sbin.  My sample-configs correctly define it, just
change the line in your nagios.cfg from:
