quick note on broken mrtg-2.15.2 from slackbuilds


Hi folks,

this morning after the latest updates for slackware-current my mrtg-2.15.2 from slackbuilds failed with

Code:
Bareword "P_DETACH" not allowed while "strict subs" in use at /usr/bin/../lib/mrtg2/MRTG_lib.pm line 1133.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/bin/mrtg line 89.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/mrtg line 89.
As there's currently no newer version for mrtg on slackbuilds, i downloaded mrtg-2.17.0.tar.gz from oetiker's page and compiled it. Changing path in crontab and it works well.

regards - uli

I did, and I learned that -current isn't supported by slackbuilds.org, but their general rule says "it should work on -current"... ok, the chances for releasing mrtg-2.17.0 on slackbuilds rise because I think it also runs on 13.1 (but I didn't try). I also informed the maintainer as suggested. Thank you.
