Confirmed over here. On two redhat 7.1 machines, unrelated but both 
running mrtg + snmp just fine, the upgrade to redhat 7.2 broke snmp.

Thanks for the pointer Oliver! Looks ok now.

The latest version (4.2.3) is available via rawhide now. This should fix this


Read ya, Phil
Comment 4 Oliver Schulze L. 2002-02-15 11:31:38 EST
The latest errata for RedHat 7.1 has this bug too:

The version in the RH7.1 errata is:

If you the disk option in your snmpd.conf, don't update to this errata in RH7.1
Should I open a new BUG# for RH71?
Has anyone tryied this errata on RH7.2?
