@Angelin01 PKGBUILD updated

@dncrash Would you mind updating this package? Should be as simple as changing the versions and the md5sum.

dncrash commented on 2019-04-10 09:29 (UTC)

@maxdourden Thanks for the feedback. I added it as a dependency.

maxdourden commented on 2019-04-09 15:53 (UTC)

I add to add perl-net-snmp module like @astroty

@christiank I think the message you're getting is just a Perl warning and isn't the cause of your problems.

I'm getting the same message too (but can't fully test if it works because the server I have available is too old and doesn't support this version of the client).

I suggest adding 'debug=1' to /etc/ocsinventory/ocsinventory-agent.cfg for a more verbose output, maybe it will help you figure out what's not working.

after a few fixes here and there I can't get it to connect :/

Useless use of concatenation (.) or string in void context at /usr/share/perl5/site_perl/Ocsinventory/Agent/ line 53.

Is something i can fix?

dncrash commented on 2019-03-05 14:34 (UTC)

I updated the PKGBUILD; the sources should be OK now. If anyone's using this and having issues, please let me know.

Can confirm windy's comment, not sure if it's a typo or they updated the download URL but there's a letter "v" missing from the version tag in the URL.

does not work, it should be


astroty commented on 2018-03-20 16:37 (UTC)

Upon further inspection, I found the following dependencies: net-tools (for displaying network information) read-edid (for displaying monitors)

The storage issue was fixed upon upgrading the package to version 2.4.0.

astroty commented on 2018-03-19 19:15 (UTC)

Is someone else having issues with storage and network not showing? My server isn't showing the computer IP Also I think perl-net-snmp should be either a requisite or optional for the program, since it throws error complaining it's not available and turns the module off.

I resolve the problem error in line 19 of Makefile.PL, modifying the PKGBUILD file replace build function to: build() { cd "$srcdir/Ocsinventory-Unix-Agent-$pkgver" sed -i "s/require 'lib\/Ocsinventory\/Agent\/';/require '.lib\/Ocsinventory\/Agent\/';/g" Makefile.PL perl Makefile.PL make || return 1 rm run-postinst }

Does not work: Can't locate inc/Module/ in @INC (you may need to install the inc::Module::Install module) (@INC contains: /usr/share/tlpkg /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/share/perl5/site_perl /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib/perl5/core_perl /usr/share/perl5/core_perl) at Makefile.PL line 2.

SkizoRutabaga commented on 2016-07-28 07:20 (UTC)

Same here.

galaux commented on 2016-03-23 16:19 (UTC)

+2 here on removing the `mkdir /var/run`

TaXules commented on 2015-09-02 10:02 (UTC)

I have an error with a conflict with /var/run already created on the filesystem. Removing the mkdir -p XX/var/run solved it.

WorMzy commented on 2014-08-03 21:53 (UTC)

You're right, the announcement on the OCS website was misleading. Sorry for the noise. :)

zeppelinlg commented on 2014-07-30 12:26 (UTC)

There is no new version for ocsinventory-agent only for the server. The current version of the linux agent is 2.1.1

WorMzy commented on 2014-05-29 13:28 (UTC)

v2.1.1 is out:

zeppelinlg commented on 2014-02-24 19:26 (UTC)

Thanks, no need to apologize, I'm french ;)

Raymondcal commented on 2014-02-20 13:14 (UTC)

Hi! There is a bug in this version: the CPU is not correctly detected and reported. A 2.1.1 version will arrive soon, as said here: (in french, sorry…)

cdemoulins commented on 2013-04-02 14:29 (UTC)

Hi, Could you please make some fixes on your package. The following line should be deleted : mkdir -p ${pkgdir}/etc/ocsinventory-agent The crontab script /etc/cron.d/ocsinventory-agent use the old path and must be updated. Thanks

djerome commented on 2013-02-27 15:23 (UTC)

Updated. Thanks for your comment.

WorMzy commented on 2013-02-27 14:49 (UTC)

Please replace instances of "${startdir}", and "${startdir}/src" with "${srcdir}". The former currently causes devtools to fail: "install: cannot stat 'ocsinventory-agent.cfg': No such file or directory". Cheers.

djerome commented on 2013-02-26 13:38 (UTC)


mathieu.clabaut commented on 2013-02-25 10:13 (UTC)

Please could you correct the cron files which point to "/usr/bin/perlbin/site/ocsinventory-agent" where the executable is now "/usr/bin/ocsinventory-agent" ?

djerome commented on 2013-01-16 13:04 (UTC)

There is a 2.0.5 version, can you upgrade it ? Otherwise I can adopt this package, I have already rebuilt it. Thanks.

dracorp commented on 2012-11-26 16:33 (UTC)

Let disown package. I can adopt it.

jfsaulais commented on 2011-07-23 21:38 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't have enough free time to go on maintaining this package with a fast reaction when an update is nedded, so we'll need someone else :)
