Hi Developers -
I've been write a quick install guide for Nagios 3
and noticed some issues when installing the latest stable release of the
The --with-nagios-user/group configure script options have disappeared
and cause some problems if you install the plugins as the root user
(which you have to do for the check_dhcp and check_icmp plugins).
The ownership on the plugins is root.root, which would normally be fine,
except for the face that the check_dhcp and check_icmp have to (1) be
setuid root and (2) be executable by the nagios user. The perms can't
get set properly now that the --with-nagios-user/group options are gone.
For the time being I've written instructions on how to fix the
permissions, but that isn't optimal. Is there are reason why these
configure script options were removed?
