Description of problem:
A softlink from /var/lib/nagios/libexec to /usr/lib/nagios/plugins is no longer provided. This breaks nagios on cross platform distribution (eg debian) since no longer a single USER1 variable can be used and commands would have to be seperately defined for debian vs fedora machines.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.check for the missing softlink
Actual Results: all my previously defined commands were suddenly broken due to a different USER1 variable.
actually, what happened is that a new directory was created, so now i have an
almost empty /usr/lib/nagios/plugins that just contains a directory
eventhandles, and a full directly of /var/lib/nagios/libexec with plugins. I
guess I need to change USER1 again to point to the old directory.
(sorry for the bad title, i stupidly re-used the previous submission entry)

Paul, but I'm currently using the RPMForge verion, which uses
(I'm probably stating the obvious, but the plugin scripts are relatively static.
/var would not be a good place for them.)
