Hobbit can't find RRDtool


I'm trying to set up a Hobbit server on this Debian Linux box. However, despite the fcat that RRDTool is installed, the configuration thing can't find it anywhere. The script says this:


Checking for RRDtool ...
RRDtool include- or library-files not found. These are REQUIRED for hobbitd
RRDtool can be found at http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~oetiker/webtools/rrdtool/
<b>If you have RRDtool installed, use the "--rrdinclude DIR" and "--rrdlib DIR"
options to configure to specify where they are.</b>

I don't understand how to use the "--rrdinclude DIR" and "--rrdlib DIR" things, though. Does anyone here know a thing or two about Hobbit? Any input would be helpul...

So, where did you install RRDtool?

So, I guess RRDTool was configured with --prefix=/usr ? And that the libraries that come with it are in /usr/lib ?

That would indicate that you should use "--rrdinclude /usr/bin --rrdlib /usr/lib" in your "configure" run.

Okay, but I still don't know how to use "--rrdinclude /usr/bin --rrdlib /usr/lib"... I'm not even familiar with that syntax. It looks like when I add "--help" to a command, but typing it like that (./configure "--rrdinclude /usr/bin --rrdlib /usr/lib) nothing happens....

Maybe it wants equal-signs?
Code:
./configure --rrdinclude=/usr/bin --rrdlib=/usr/lib

Hmm... that didn't work either.

Although, I did install it with the "symantic package manager" (the name is from memory... I can't check at the moment because I'm on a different machine) which I assume is something similar to mandrake's RPMdrake... excpet Debian doesn't seem to use RPM's. Does the package manager do something weird during installation that I might be overlooking?

"Synaptic".

Debian uses .debs, which are really not that different from .rpms.

You probably didn't install the "-dev" package for RRDtool, which is required for compiling against such things. Looks like it's called "librrd2-dev" (based on searching packages.debian.org). Install that with synaptic, and maybe things will work better.

Also, you can see what files are in an installed package and where they went with "dpkg -L packagename". Read the manpage for dpkg - it can do a lot of useful things.

dpkg -L rrdtool should show you all the files in the rrdtool package and where they would have been installed...

Synaptic not Symantic

Of course you could download the Debian packages of hobbit and install it that way...
http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...ease_id=370566

dpkg -i hobbit_4.1.2p1-1_i386.deb hobbit-client_4.1.2p1-1_i386.deb

I imagine the deb packages of Hobbit will already know where to look for rrdtool as well. .

OKAY. I've got a Makefile, now. I have gcc installed, but neither the "make" or "gmake" commands work. I type "make Makefile" and I get "make: nothing to be done for "Makefile." Any ideas?
