Nagios Plugins Quick-and-Dirty Installation Instructions

0) If you are using the CVS tree, you will need m4, gettext, automake, and autoconf. 
   To start out, run ./tools/setup

   For more detail, see the developer guidelines at

1) Run the configure script to initialize variables and create a Makefile, etc.

	./configure --prefix=BASEDIRECTORY --with-cgiurl=SOMEURL

   a) Replace BASEDIRECTORY with the path of the directory under which Nagios
      is installed (default is '/usr/local/nagios')
   b) Replace CGIURL with the path used to access the Nagios CGIs with
      a web browser (default is '/nagios/cgi-bin')

2) Compile the plugins with the following command:


3) Install the compiled plugins and plugin scripts with the following command:

	make install

   The installation procedure will attempt to place the plugins in a 
   'libexec/' subdirectory in the base directory you specified with
   the --prefix argument to the configure script.

4) There are some plugins that require setuid. If you run make install as 
   a non root user, they will not be installed. To install, switch to root and 

	make install-root

5) Verify that your host configuration file (hosts.cfg) for Nagios contains
   the correct paths to the new plugins.

That's it! If you have any problems or questions, feel free send mail
