NagStamon – Nagios status monitor for KDE GNOME


  1. On Debian, you need to install at least these packages:
    shell$ sudo aptitude install python-setuptools python2.5 python-gnome2-extras python-lxml

    I would imagine some of these or similar packages are needed on SuSE also, especially since you have KDE4’s menu, you’d need the GNOME packages.

    However, I still cannot get the app to run:

    shell$ nagstamon
    No module named Nagstamon
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “/usr/lib/nagstamon/nagstamon”, line 61, in
    output = nagstamonGUI.GUI(conf=conf, servers=servers, Resources=Resources)
    File “/usr/lib/nagstamon/”, line 82, in __init__
    File “/usr/lib/nagstamon/”, line 113, in CreateOutputVisuals
    gtk.window_set_default_icon_from_file(self.Resources + “/nagstamon” + self.BitmapSuffix)
    glib.GError: Couldn’t recognize the image file format for file ‘/usr/lib/nagstamon/resources/nagstamon.svg’

  2. yast2 -i python-lxml is deprecated, one should use “zypper in python-lxml” instead. And the second package is installed better with “rpm -ivh nagstamon-0.8.2-2.noarch.rpm” (depending on the version, of course). The rason for that is that since SUSE 10.1 zypper is the software in the middle, so to install a package from a known repository you should use zypper, and fro packages lying around on the disk, rpm -i was always the best choice 😉
