I finally managed to put some Nagios 3.0b4 ebuilds together and committed them to my personal dev-overlay on friday. Besides supporting the latest bleeding-edge Nagios I added support for another webserver, lighttpd aka lighty – thanks to Tiziano Müller for his patches (bug #191675). For testing lighty w/ Nagios I set up my first lighty installation ever -and I’m still kinda impressed of its easiness :) Another thing I consider for Nagios 3 ebuilds is FHS compliance – there’s been a bug opened this weekend (# 194141). I’m pretty unsure about that, as this will probably break all Nagios installations on Gentoo boxes out there, plus Sysadmins would need to adjust all their customizations while upgrading to a newer Nagios version. As I said, I’m *very* unsure about that – so any feedback on implementing FHS compliance for nagios-* ebuilds is welcome :)
After getting up I usually read my mails – so I did on early saturday morning. One email I found was the announce of nagios-plugins 1.4.10, no suprise as there was a discussion about things to get fixed for 1.4.10 on the nagiosplug-devel mailinglist just some days ago. But 1.4.10 also fixes a buffer overflow in the included check_http plugin, after doing a quick version bump (and adjusting some patches) stabilization is now handled by our security team in bug #194178.
