Description Timo Eissler 2012-12-20 09:27:51 UTC
Created attachment 332764 [details]

I created a ebuild for check_mk, because the existing ebuild ( only has the capability to install the check_mk agent and not the complete check_mk package.

So this is the first version of my ebuild for check_mk 1.2.0p3.
As this is my first complex ebuild please review it and give me feedback.

Ebuild for the new stable version 1.2.2p1 of check_mk.
Comment 9 Timo Eissler 2013-05-24 16:54:58 UTC
If anyone of the Gentoo developers would assist me, i would provide support and updates for this ebuild as good as i can.

I already thought about becoming a Gentoo developer, but i'm not sure if i have enough time to do this.
Comment 10 Marcel Pennewiß 2013-06-02 16:37:15 UTC
Some of your useflags-checks are not correct and always checks for use-flag "apache_status".

Patch for from check_mk 1.2.4p3
Comment 17 Yixun Lan archtester gentoo-dev 2014-06-30 04:21:32 UTC
a) update EAPI to latest version, now it's 5
b) update to python-r1 [1]
c) upstream release p4, possible to upgrade to that version?
d) cd, cp, rm, cat, sed, emake in src_compile() -> need "|| die"
e) need metadata.xml. eg, for IUSE descriptions and other stuff

patch against 1.2.4_p5

1) converge "has_version net-analyzer/nagios-core" usage
 I noticed for "nagios" user, some path using "/var" while "icinga" use "/var/lib", can we centralize this? (eg, ${nagpipe, check_result_path, nagios_status_file, rrd_path}

2) livecheck USE is not used in this ebuild?
Comment 23 Timo Eissler 2014-07-15 17:20:17 UTC
Created attachment 380764 [details]

Sorry for the late answer.

1) I converged the ones where it is possible, but the ones you already mentioned can't be converged because these are the paths the icinga and nagios ebuild developers use

2) livecheck support has beend removed from upstream
