munin 1.4 on debian 5

Posted on Updated on

Due to the fact that in the stable debian the munin version is 1.2.x, which is to old for me, I have build now the latest stable munin version 1.4.x for stable debain.

Here now the steps how I have reached the munin_1.4.5-2_all.deb, munin-common_1.4.5-2_all.deb, munin-java-plugins_1.4.5-2_all.deb, munin-node_1.4.5-2_all.deb, munin-plugins-extra_1.4.5-2_all.deb for installation

aptitude install svn-buildpackage quilt htmldoc sun-java6-jdk dpkg-dev

dpkg-dev is for dpkg-buildpackage

svn co svn:// 1.4-stable_20100810
cd 1.4-stable_20100810
svn co svn:// debian

change one line in debian/Makefile.config

vim debian/Makefile.config
JC         = /usr/lib/jvm/default-java/bin/javac
JC         = /etc/alternatives/javac

and in debian/control

vim debian/control
Build-Depends-Indep: perl, htmldoc, html2text, default-jdk
Build-Depends-Indep: perl, htmldoc, html2text, sun-java6-jdk

After all this steps you can execute


as described in the README

On every node you must also install the following packages, at least.

aptitude install gawk rrdtool librrds-perl liblog-log4perl-perl libnet-server-perl

now you can install the packages as usual with dpkg -i

UPDATE: I opened a ticket
