Recompiling/Reinstalling packaged plugins on centOS Linux
Posted on 2009-12-31
Before I ask my question, I will preface my statement with the fact that I am a complete novice when it comes to Linux.
I have installed Nagios 3.2 on centOS 5.4 and everything is working fine. I am monitoring a few hosts with no problem. However, I went to configure printers and noticed that I didn't have the check_hpjd plugin in the /usr/local/nagios/libexec directory. So after some research I found I needed to install net-snmp and net-snmp-utils. I used yum to download/install these packages which went fine. However, my impression is that I have to recompile/reinstall the Nagios plugins now. My question is am I going to run the ./configure /make /make install commands again in the Nagios plugins folder or will that mess up my current setup. Am I doing this correctly?
