Description Michael 2012-10-17 15:50:03 UTC
Description of problem:

I just updated to munin-2.0.7-1 on Fedora 17 x86_64 and began receiving emails like:

Cron <munin@deathstar> test -x /usr/bin/munin-cron && /usr/bin/munin-cron

/usr/bin/env: perl -T: No such file or directory

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:  Everytime

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install munin-node
2.  Do not have perl-Taint-Runtime installed
3.  Start munin
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

The munin rpms should have a dependency on perl-Taint-Runtime to ensure it is installed

dupe of Bug 867437?

Comment 2 Michael 2012-10-17 21:38:43 UTC
They could be combined into a single ticket.  I searched prior to submitting, but didn't find anything on this.  

There are two issues.  One, passing additional arguments to perl via env and the second is making sure perl-Taint-Runtime is installed.  

I don't believe issue 867437 would directly address the second issue.

Comment 3 Lonni J Friedman 2012-10-17 21:47:19 UTC
Installing perl-Taint-Runtime doesn't seem to fix the cronjob errors though.

Comment 4 Michael 2012-10-17 21:48:50 UTC
It fixed it for me.  Make sure you completely stop and restart munin.

Can you now run perl -T without it complaining about uknown options?

Comment 5 Lonni J Friedman 2012-10-17 21:51:45 UTC
I thought munin (not munin-node) was cron driven?  Regardless, its a cronjob that is failing, so I'm not sure what I'd restart.  

Specifically what did you stop & restart?

Comment 6 Andras Kemeny 2012-10-19 10:03:25 UTC
confirming error. it resulted in my munin installation actually working, but not producing any images (and munin-graph.log was empty), and my root inbox filled quickly with mail describing the error above.

for now, i've fixed it using a patch found for pipermail: http://lists.linuxtogo.org/pipermail/openembedded-devel/2011-January/029373.html

i.e. removed the -T argument from munin-graph's first line, and it works without a glitch.

but the env+perl args issue hints at something bigger and possibly much more problematic. i guess that's an issue that should be resolved ASAP.

Comment 7 Andras Kemeny 2012-10-19 19:33:07 UTC
be advised: bind9 plugin dies similarly; env and the -w switch don't play well together. remind me again, why are we using the env now?

Comment 8 Lonni J Friedman 2012-10-19 19:52:18 UTC
In one of the other numerous munin buzilla bugs associated with the 2.0.7 update, someone commented that Fedora is basically just repackaging what comes from upstream, and not making any functional changes (or enhancements).  If that's true, then this came from upstream.  No clue why the change was made though.

Comment 9 d. johnson 2012-10-19 23:00:30 UTC
Andras, because the upstream tarball has it ..  The new packages will not.

Lonni, correct. It came from upstream.

koji has a 2.0.7-2 build if you want, or 2.0.7-3 will be coming out shortly with this and a few other minor fixes.  The -3 release will be in -testing first.  Please feel free to check there and report.

Comment 10 Lonni J Friedman 2012-10-19 23:02:53 UTC
Can you post the URL(s) for the 2.0.7-3 koji builds (once available)?  I'll be happy to test them out.

These 2.0.7-3 RPMs, appear to be shipping 

Is that intended?

Comment 18 d. johnson 2012-10-22 20:31:14 UTC
nice catch Lonni.  will update the spec once i find why it was included.

Aside from that, the original issue:

/usr/bin/env: perl -T: No such file or directory

Has it been resolved with this update?
