Problem installing argus


I'm trying to install argus(netflow analyzer) on a Ubuntu 8.10 machine through the console as sudo root. After trying the src and having it fail, I decided to use apt. After typing "apt-get install argus-server" I get the following output...


root@ubuntu1:~# apt-get install argus-server
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
linux-headers-2.6.27-7 linux-headers-2.6.27-7-generic
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
The following extra packages will be installed:
argus-client
Suggested packages:
librrds-perl
The following NEW packages will be installed:
argus-client argus-server
0 upgraded, 2 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0B/1769kB of archives.
After this operation, 4170kB of additional disk space will be used.

The program 'argus' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
apt-get install argus-server
bash: argus: command not found



I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks.

Argus isn't in your path, or isn't running. Type in "locate argus" or "find / -name argus" as root, and put the entire path and command in, or modify your existing path to include the directory where it is.

The Argus documentation on their web site, says you have to set the $ARGUSHOME environment variable, and set up the configuration file. Have you done that?

I don't know how to set the $ARGUSHOME environment variable.

Installation notes and documents came with Arugs. Read them, and the manual and HOW-TO's on their web page here http://www.qosient.com/argus/manuals.htm

Binary package hint: argus-server
The file /usr/sbin/argus is a symlink to usr/sbin/argus_linux
but the file is missing in the i386 package.
This package seems to be OK in Ubuntu 8.10 :
http://packages.debian.org/lenny/i38...erver/download
argus-server_2.0.6.fixes.1-16_i386.deb
( Debian Lenny )
....
