Good Morning;

I would consider myself a novice at best, when it comes to navigating and installing software within Linux.
Currently using Ubuntu 12.04 LTR...

Just attempted to "make" the latest release unto a new installation of Nagios, but make barfs all over itself when it reaches "check_http"

Is there an updated version or am I just not grabbing the correct tarball .....

The Nagios Plugins Development Team is proud to announce a new release of the Nagios Plugins!  This release contains several enhancements and bug fixes.  Many thanks to all the contributors who raised issues or provided patches.

You can get the tarball from:



 * check_nt UPTIME accepts warning/critical thresholds
 * check_disk_smb now allows spaces in share names
 * check_http now uses standard threshold functions (enables floating
   point and ranges)
 * check_http now checks for and prints the certificate cn (hostname) in
   SSL certificate checks
 * check_http now supports an optional -S/--ssl value to choose the SSL
   protocol version
 * Add perfdata to check_ssh
 * New option to check_smtp to ignore failures when sending QUIT
 * New check_by_ssh -F option which allows for specifying an alternative
   ssh_config(5) file
 * check_sensors now detects faulty sensors unless --ignore-fault is
 * utils.sh now provides a check_range function
 * Improved the performance of check_users
 * Add perfdata to check_disk_smb
 * Updated Nagios::Plugin perl module
 * Add warning threshold to certificate expiration checks of
 * Add --perf-oids option for check_snmp


 * Fix check_disk free space calculation if blocksizes differ within a
   disk group
 * check_disk_smb now handles NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED properly
 * Make check_snmp work more like v1.4.14 with regard to using special
   values (Timeticks, STRING) as numeric thresholds
 * Fix check_ldap overriding the port when --ssl was specified after -p
 * Fix check_procs where regex input of '|' would get displayed in
   output - now replaced with ','
 * Fix segfault in check_host when hostname returns multiple IP
 * Fix check_smtp and check_tcp where duplicate messages were displayed
   for certificate errors
 * Fix check_ping's parsing of ping6(1) output
 * Fix a check_dhcp bug which was triggered by checking Windows 2003
   DHCP servers
 * Disable RFC4507 support, to work around SSL negotiation issues with
   (at least) some Tomcat versions
 * Fix performance data label containing spaces in check_snmp
