Description Stefan Neufeind 2011-10-06 12:16:13 UTC
It would be great to please upgrade collectd in Fedora + EPEL to major-version 5. It has been around since March now and provides major new features while preserving at least a minimum of common ground to work with collectd v4-data from sensors.

Comment 1 Andrew Elwell 2012-02-27 13:35:47 UTC
OK - I have a patched spec and srpm available at 


Apart from minor changes (new binaries / manpages needed adding) I've left the original pretty much unchanged. There's one upstream fix needed (already tracked on https://github.com/collectd/collectd/pull/35 which means we temporarily have dependencies on autoconf just now. 

It's not building on rawhide due to a bug (related to usrMove) in iptables-devel - with a patched iptables rpm that too compiles and builds OK. See bug #797773 for details (can't resolve iptc_init)

Comment 2 Alan Pevec (Fedora) 2012-02-27 14:02:41 UTC
Thanks for the spec patch, I'll commit that and build when iptables is fixed.

Comment 3 Andrew Elwell 2012-02-27 14:11:00 UTC
Hi - I'm actually working on getting some of the -5 only features enabled, priority for me is the AMQP hook, and I haven't done any regression checks to make sure all the existing 4.10 features still work.

I'll update my dropbox copy as n when I remember as I (fedora id 'Elwell' ) don't have git commit access to collectd

Comment 4 Alan Pevec 2012-02-28 23:07:52 UTC
Summary after discussion on the list:
- update to 5.0 in rawhide and f17 (depending on iptables fix)
- keep 4.10.x for f16
- create parallel installable collectd5 for epel6

F17 is actually feature frozen, so let's push that work to f18 and I'll update f17 and f16 to the latest maintenance release 4.10.6

(In reply to comment #4)
> - create parallel installable collectd5 for epel6

Initial collectd5.spec by eolamey - remaining issues are:
- rename libcollectdclient
- rename Collectd perl module


Comment 7 Christopher Meng 2012-09-13 15:07:54 UTC
Hey maintainer, 

I wish you could do an update for rawhide,because F18 is important for RHEL7,I want to taste the newest soft.

Comment 8 Alan Pevec 2012-09-17 16:36:32 UTC
Andrew, f18 is closing in, so I'll commit latest spec from you.
For further improvements, please request commit in FAS, so you can update directly.
