Status: Resolved (closed on 2012-05-14 15:34:24 +00:00)
Target Version: 1.7
Last Update: 2012-05-14 15:34:24 +00:00 (in Redmine)
1.7 will be a changing release, therefore i will put some notes together, which should be put into the upgrade docs. especially people should read the Changelog - add a tip for that pls.
as we now have feature freeze, all expected changes should have been done (hopefully). i'll tell web devs to update the issue here as well then.

i missed the nagiosenv configure option
In README.RHEL.idoutils (and within the docs) there are only recommandations for pgsql and mysql. But in general i think we can point to the ready-to-use create_xyzdb.sh scripts in idoutils/db/scripts as blueprint for the required steps and to the wiki for details

the spec file builds libdbi only, and therefore can't be targetted against oracle. furthermore, building with oracle will require ocilib headers installed which will require oracle sdk installed. which is not available freely, so such a spec file can be shared in contrib/ - if i ever get time to rework the internal stuff. but right on, oracle does not work with the binaries you'll get out of rpmbuild.

i think its word to offer such configured oracle package because its linked against ocilib, not the oracle client itself. In this case its up to the user to have ocilib in its system.
We can additional offer a package for ocilib which is compiled by us with the Oracle Instantclient because ocilib is free. Also precompiled ocilib headers can be distributed for free. Than the end user only needs this oracle client we used to compile.
Oracle Instant client can be downloaded for free (incl. SDK) from Oracle Technet http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/linuxx86-64soft-092277.html, only a free registration is required
This "Instant Client" is bound to the term Oracle provided here : http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/licenses/instant-client-lic-152016.html, which looks really fair. We can point to the download page but if i read this (I am not a licence expert) i would say its also free to distribute in binary form. Maybe some advanced person in this terms can check it

i don't see an extra value in adding an oracle ocilib spec file to upstream right now. see my remarks on the oracle issues and the less people actually providing feedback. i would not like to see package rebuilds needed for testing then. and of course, some parts of my work need to be asked permission for to be shared.

with oracle package i ment primary an icinga package or extra ido2db package linked with ocilib.
Your last sentence i dont got. For my understanding if there is a need to ask for permissions it affects in the first step the sources, which are up to now shared to public in general, but we are talking about the binary distribution as rpm build on top of the already shared sources.
More than this: If there is someones code part we use ungranted, in doubt, permissions not asked yet etc., it should be removed from public sources immediately for not harming anybodys rights. in this area is less more

sure, i do get what you mean. but there are parts of my work on icinga, i do for work internally and that might need a question asking to share such. same goes for our plugins.

Changed the text of "whatsnew" in r1.7

ok. on the "upgrade (to) icinga" page, please remark the change of "bindir/idomod.o" to "libdir/idomod.so" and outline that this requires a config change - either in icinga.cfg:broker_module OR modules/idoutils.cfg:module definition.
the old idomod.o will be removed if detected.
plus, make install-idoutils will warn about the change as well. pinpoint to read Changelog -> CHANGES for users.
