ntop: update to version 3.3.9 / 3.3.10
Last modified: 2009-12-07 01:30:58 EST
Description of problem:
The latest upstream version is 3.3.9.
The current EPEL5 version is ntop-3.3.6.
The current rawhide version is ntop-3.3.8.
Version 3.3.9 in EPEL5.
I maintain packages for fedora repos only. Will request someone to update for EPEL5 between.
Huzaifa import 3.3.8 for now 3.3.9 requires investigation about GeoLiteCity data binary form it downloads while building. It also downloads GeoIP but that is present in fedora repo. Need to investigate the license issues with GeoLiteCity and package it so that we can update on later stage. I would like to keep ntop 3.3.8 for now.
GeoLiteCity is not worth packaging. The CSV file is some 100MB and we cannot even think of importing 28 MB binary. I will rather wait for more stable 4.0.0 :) Will close once Huzafas imports in EPEL5.
Hi Huzaifa, if I get commit permissions, I'll do the update for EPEL.
Any update on this?
Current upstream version: 3.3.10
Current rawhide version: 3.3.10
Current EPEL version: 3.3.6
FYI: ntop 3.3.9 can be built for epel but ntop 3.3.10 can't due to the new libevent requirement (libevent version >= 1.4):
checking for event_get_version in -levent... no
Error! You need to have libevent 1.4.X or better.
Could someone please build ntop-3.3.9-5 for EPEL5?
The source files can be the ones available in the CVS F-11 branch. It only requires a specfile modification: the line specifying the tcp_wrappers BR must be changed as RHEL still uses a monolithic tcp_wrappers package (no tcp_wrappers-devel subpackage).
There was an issue with koji and the ntop build, which is sorted now, will look into building it for EL-5 now.
ntop-3.3.9-7.el5 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 5.
Can you test the update, so that it can be pushed to stable. Thanks.
