Description John Reddy 2013-07-09 16:30:51 EDT
Description of problem:
The program "waitmax" which should be included as part of check-mk-agent is missing.  Waitmax is a necessary component for the "nfsmounts" test.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Using check-mk-1.2.2-3.el6.src.rpm:

[rpmbuild]$ grep -A 1 waitmax SPECS/check-mk.spec 
# Remove waitmax and its leftarounds, looks like it's a statically linked binary.
rm %{buildroot}%{_datadir}/check_mk/agents/waitmax
rm %{buildroot}%{_datadir}/check_mk/agents/waitmax.c
rm %{buildroot}%{_datadir}/check_mk/agents/Makefile

Additional info:
The above cited Makefile may be run to compile the correct version for the given architecture, and should not be deleted from the RPM, nor the waitmax.c.
Comment 1 John Reddy 2013-07-09 17:08:20 EDT
Additionally, the 'waitmax' binary is used in the following tests in /usr/bin/check-mk-agent:

nfsmounts (already cited)
Comment 2 John Reddy 2013-08-26 15:11:40 EDT
The following change should address the build problem.  However, it is technically architecture specific, as there's a binary that's part of this package.
