[nocol-users] Installing 4.2.2b1
I made these notes as I was installing NOCOL 4.2.2beta1 on our Sun Ultra running Solaris 2.5. I hope they may be useful to Vikas in tidying up the release ditribution, and/or to others installing this stuff on their system: ----------------------------------------------------------------- Installing make Fairly straightforward, except: I got the link error (mentioned in ealier correspondence on this list) which needed fixing. When will this go into the distribution? (When Vikas gets A Round Tuit, I guess ;-) some etc/samples *-conf scripts and others in bin needed chmod +w to edit perlnocol/testlog and some other perl scripts have path /usr/local/bin/perl instead of the path I entered in ./Configure (just as well /usr/local/bin/perl is linked to the real perl on my system anyway!) scinfo@sunm2> testlog (libdebug) init_event: Inserting index= 1, Sitename= TestSite, Siteaddr= TestAddr (libdebug) eventlog: socket opened 1 Did these packets get logged by noclogd at the info level ? noclogd: Could not open stream `/nocol/logs/info'- No such file or directory I found I needed to edit etc/noclogd-conf to set nocol path - originally /nocol -- this was not clear from INSTALL In notifier.pl also I needed to set $nocolroot manually - a bit odd as the script seems to have had its #! ..perl path set up correctly by the install script, so I'd have thought it would have $nocolroot set correctly also. In genweb.pl, not clear if $processor is path in filesystem or relative to URL - but this is made clear in webnocol.cgi Aargh! INSTALL says edit webnocol/genweb.pl but there is already a copy in bin which is the one that is used! INSTALL doesn't mention installing noclogd properly - only in debug mode It would be helpful to mention that keepalive_monitors kicks it in (I'd already set it up to start from /etc/rc3.d/SNNnoclogd before I realised and had to undo that <sigh>). Install and the FAQ are silent on how to get monitors (e.g. rpcpingmon) to accept changes to their -conf files. I came in late to the mail list and missed the start of the thread Re: nocol and kill signals (and can't be ****ed to read the archives in raw mbox format -- yuk, Vikas, haven't you heard of MHonArc? :-) but got the gist that it's a to-do item. A note in INSTALL and/or the FAQ on doing it the 'hard' way (I presume a kill and restart, or wait for keepalive_monitors to do it for you) would be useful. etherload and trapmon are -rws--x--- 1 root other, multiping is -rws--x--x 1 root other - surely they should all be o+x ?? -- John Stumbles firstname.lastname@example.org Computer Services, University of Reading http://www.rdg.ac.uk/~suqstmbl +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+ If a job's worth doing, it'll still be worth doing tomorrow.
