Code behind nagios plugins

This might be a very stupid question, but i want to ask: How to see the code behind the nagios plugin: Nagios Checker? I opened the folder which i have downloaded. After that where do i have to go to see the codes? Is it in App_Codes?

Nagios checker is a mozilla plugins. if you want to see source code checkout svn repository.

svn repository? whats that? x.x

Check this link about svn. Every open-source app usually has an svn repo in order to download the source code and edit it and re-publish if you want!

Hi gasdim,

but i still don't understand how to use it to get the source code?
i thought the source code is in the plugins file when we have downloaded it?
sorry i'm stupid :X

The application have a link given by the site-publisher for example app test have http://svn.companyname/xxx/test so you give in a terminal svn checkout http://svn.companyname/xxx/test and the file starts download

so i have to download svn?

sorry still don't really get it x_x

Open a terminal and give svn co subversion

Xanios 08-06-2010 04:01 AM

Oh okay.


xanios@ubuntu:~$ svn co subversion
The program 'svn' is currently not installed.  You can install it by typing:
sudo apt-get install subversion
svn: command not found

so i go along with 'sudo apt-get install subversion' and that should be it?

thank you

In a terminal give sudo apt-get install subversion in order to install svn app. When finished give svn co subversion and the app will download immidiatelly. It will save in a folder in your home directory!

Xanios 08-06-2010 04:16 AM

Hmm, okay.

But when i give svn co subversion, it just 'paused'?


Setting up subversion (1.6.5dfsg-1ubuntu1) ...
Processing triggers for libc-bin ...
ldconfig deferred processing now taking place
xanios@ubuntu:~$ svn co subversion

is there something wrong?

The command
svn co subversion
.. works OK today > " Checked out revision 983224. "
( 83.6 MB subversion was received.)

But that is not really something you need, when subversion
already is installed with 'sudo apt-get install subversion' ?

Xanios 08-07-2010 08:33 AM

hi there,

Xanios 08-07-2010 09:58 AM
