Hi all;I'm setting up snmpd, I've download the package and installed it ok. I've setup the configuration files, when i run/usr/local/etc/rc.d/snmpd start i getStarting snmpd. /libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libperl.so" not found, required by "snmpd" So I do a quick locate and find netra1# locate libperl.so /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.7/mach/CORE/libperl.so Is that an uncompiled version of libperl.so? Should I add /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.7/mach/CORE to my path? Or is it something else completely?
It's because the current version of perl in the ports tree is 5.8.8 -- when the net-snmpd package was compiled it was linked against a later version. You can probably see this by examining the output of: % ldd /usr/local/sbin/snmpd The fix is either: upgrade perl (recommended, as there's a security advisory against older versions of perl:http://www.vuxml.org/freebsd/5b47c279-8cb5-11dc-8878-0016179b2dd5.html )
or: compile the net-mgmt/net-snmpd port from sources Cheers, Matthew -- Dr Matthew J Seaman MA, D.Phil. 7 Priory Courtyard Flat 3 PGP: http://www.infracaninophile.co.uk/pgpkey Ramsgate Kent, CT11 9PW
