I am using Dag Wieers rpm nagios-plugins-1.4-2.2.el4.rf on el4.

There are a couple of problems I found, besides check_ping I have not 
found a bugreport.

[root at jupiter ~]# ./check_ping -H -w 2,10% -c 5,20%
/bin/ping -n -U -w 10 -c 5
CRITICAL - Could not interpret output from ping command

There seems to be a bugreport from January.

This service is flapping very much.
[root at jupiter ~]# /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_dns -H jupiter.awaro.com 
DNS OK: 0,005 seconds response time jupiter.awaro.com hat 
[root at jupiter ~]# /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_dns -H jupiter.awaro.com 
DNS WARNING - nslookup hat einen Fehler zurückgegeben

[root at jupiter nagios]# /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_dig -H -l awaro.com
DNS WARNING - awaro.com.                86400   IN      A

Why does this return a WARNING?

[root at jupiter ~]# /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_load -w 1,1,1 -c 2,2,2
Warning threshold must be float or float triplet!

Usage: check_load -w WLOAD1,WLOAD5,WLOAD15 -c CLOAD1,CLOAD5,CLOAD15
[root at jupiter ~]# /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_load -w 1 -c 2
OK - load average: 

Looks like it doesn't like a triplet?

Anybody has any idea about these problems?
I must admit it looks like we're having DNS problems but this is not the 
case, DNS works fine here and checked via 1.3 versions of the plugins is ok.
