Description Jules Agee 2000-10-03 18:50:15 EDT
After installing RedHat 7.0 with the ucd-snmp and ucd-snmp-utils rpms, it
was a big pain-in-the-tuckus to get tkmib working, and it shouldn't have
been. Here's the saga:

1) tkmib complains about missing tk.pm (doesn't complain about missing
any other dependencies). 

2) No problem - downloaded, compiled, installed tk.pm. 

3) Run it again - now tkmib complains about missing SNMP.pm. Irritating
- how many more modules am I missing? View tkmib source - nope, that's
it, just tk and SNMP modules are used...

4) Download SNMP.pm package from CPAN. Makefile.PL asks for location of
ucd-snmp include files. Don't have any - I installed from the binary RPM,
which apparently doesn't install these. Grrr.

5) Download ucd-snmp source RPM, and install. Untar the sources. View
SNMP.pm's Makefile.PL, to figure out exactly which include files it's
looking for. It apparently is seeking a directory called ucd-snmp,
containing such goodies as ucd-snmp-config.h, with many others. It expects
this directory to be in /usr/local/include. 

In order to get this to work correctly, I have to install ucd-snmp from the
.tar.gz distribution, which installs the include files that SNMP.pm needs
that weren't installed by the RPM. Then SNMP.pm installs, and tkmib works.

The perl CPAN module needs updating and a SNMP perl module RPM could really be used (as well as a Tk perl module rpm).
