It appears that the problem of getting mrtg to start may have something to do with perl and libraries. I installed mrtg on another FreeBSD6.3 system today. That system would have worked so I began poking around on both systems and then it hit me. It's terribly obvious after one realizes what is wrong.
The problem system complains: Can't locate SNMP_util.pm in @INC (@INC contains: --- and then a ls showing everything else that is there. The working test system does have: /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/SNMP_util.pm The problem system actually has an extremely similar file name: /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/Net_SNMP_util.pm Easy to overlook but still a totally different file name. Gee, what if I just link the missing name to the good file as in ln -s Net_SNMP_util.pm SNMP_util.pm That produced: Subroutine version redefined at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/SNMP_util.pm line 394. and so on for 22 lines of similar squawks. I did briefly have net-snmp installed on that system but it has been deinstalled unless it left a library or two lying around. There is no need for net-snmp so if I could figure out what it put on and make sure it is gone, that might fix the problem.
