Newbie Question - Installation Guide
#1
I'm interested in testing and using Pandora FMS BUT I'm by no stretch of the imagination a Linux guy and was wondering if there is a detailed installation step by step guide anywhere. The QIG looks great, however I'm stuck on the first line? What is a subversion client javascript:emoticon(':?')
Confused? Also which version of Linux should is the best to use for the installation. If this has been answered already please provide the link.

Thanks

subversion is a version management system for code. You only need to download subversion agent and use it (ONCE) to grab latest code. Don't worry and don't allow it to confuse you :-).

If you use Debian / Ubuntu, you could use the guide step by step and make your Pandora from SVN in just a few minutes (or hours), but there are a lot of things about configuring Apache and Mysql (LAMP) that are not covered by the QIG, so take a look in the FAQ http://www.openideas.info/wiki/index.php...andora:FAQ when you find problems, whatever... try asking here also.

Good luck!

Great. Thanks.

I think I'm off to a good start here but I need a little help.
In Ubuntu after running below:

"apt-get install libdate-manip-perl snmp snmpd libsnmp-perl libtime-format-perl \ libxml-simple-perl libnetaddr-ip-perl libdbi-perl libxml-simple-perl libnetaddr-ip-perl"

I get an error "E: Couldn't find package libxml-simple-perl". Is this critical? How can I get this package? Is it on the Ubuntu disk? If so, how do I get it? Another thing, does Ubuntu have a GUI?

Thanks

In the interest of time knowing that this might bite me in the long run I skipped past the previous section until I got an answer :lol:. Now I'm at the part in the QIG "Test Pandora FMS data server". I run the comand "pandora_server --help" and get the error "Can't locate Date/Manip.pm in @INC contains: ~", etc, etc. Have I successfully broken it? This time I'll wait for an answer.

First issue:
[email protected]:~$ apt-cache search libxml-simple-perl
libxml-simple-perl - Perl module for reading and writing XML

Do you have the multiverse repos activated?

The second problem:
Seems you didn't install the libdate-manip-perl package.

My guess is the fact of you're not using the proper repos in ubuntu, you might want to activate multiverse one

Add this line to your /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://www.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ feisty universe multiverse

Cheers

I decided to backup a bit bcause I felt I was missing something. At 'perl Makefile.PL' I get these 3 warnings>

Warning: prerequisite NetAddr::IP 0 not found.
Warning: prerequisite SNMP 0 not found.
Warning: prerequisite Time::Format 0 not found.

The QIG says to get missing prerequisites - how do I get these? I tried using the 'apt-get install' command but that does not work or I'm not looking for the right packages.

Thanks

You need libsnmp-perl libnetaddr-ip-perl and libtime-format-perl

Again, did you take a look at your sources?
All the requerimients are in the apt-get repositories

Cheers

As manu says, review if you have the multiverse repositories, by checking /etc/apt/sources.list file.

It should contain a line (not commented, without any #) like:

[code:1]deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ feisty multiverse[/code]
