Hello!

I use Nagios 3.2. When there is a problem Nagios won't play sound in IE and Firefox on Windows. I found this patch:
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.network.nagios.devel/5391 (last post)

I tried patch -p1 5401-001.bin but nothing happened.
How can I install this patch?

Hope you can help me out! Thanks!

Hi,

This patch is for nagios 3.0.3 but it might work for nagios 3.2.
If you are in the nagios source folder, you should use "patch -p2 <path_to_the_patch_file>"
In which folder are you when you execute the patch command?
If it is not working, you can still patch the file manually:
  Open cgi/status.c
  Around line 438, replace
     printf("<object type=\"application/wav\" data=\"%s%s\" height=\"0\" width=\"0\">",url_media_path,sound);
   by
     printf("<object type=\"application/x-mplayer2\" data=\"%s%s\" height=\"0\" width=\"0\">",url_media_path,sound);
  Open cgi/tac.c
  Around line 323,
  Replace
     printf("<object type=\"application/wav\" height=\"-\" width=\"0\">");
  by
     printf("<object type=\"application/x-mplayer2\" data=\"%s%s\" height=\"-\" width=\"0\">",url_media_path,sound);

Hey!

Thanks! I have to change it manually. I'm going to recompile Nagios later.

Isn't there another way to fix this problem without reinstalling Nagios?

Well, you have to recompile nagios.
To install the new one, if you previously instaleld it from the same sources, you can stop nagios, replace the new binary/ies and start it again.
Make sure to copy the full nagios tree before doing this, just in case.
