Hello and Greetings to all in this forum,
I am new to linux and this is my first post in this forum too.
I have installed Nagios 3.0.6 on a Fedora Core 9 machine successfully. I will like to generate graphs for my collected data and after some googling, I come across this opensource application named "Nagiosgraph".
I read from the Install file (inside the Nagiosgraph package) that I will need to install the following prerequisite perl modules: "perl-cgi" and "perl-rrdtools" before I can install Nagiosgraph.
I cannot get the above-mentioned package by trying the below commands:
yum install perl-cgi
yum install perl-rrdtools
as it will return that no such package is found.
I then try googling for these packages and come across something that looks similar perl (FCGI) but am unable to find the packages with the exact names for Fedora Core 9 (I can find for other distributions like Red Hat 9).
1) any idea on where to get the "perl-cgi" and "perl-rrdtools" modules beside using YUM?
2) if a package's name looks similar (e.g. perl-cgi vs perl(FCGI)), how can we tell that whether they are even the same package, besides trial and error?
Many thanks in advance.
