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.

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.

Same here.

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

TaXules commented on 2015-09-02 10:02

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

You're right, the announcement on the OCS website was misleading.

Sorry for the noise. :)

zeppelinlg commented on 2014-07-30 12:26

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

v2.1.1 is out:

zeppelinlg commented on 2014-02-24 19:26

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

Raymondcal commented on 2014-02-20 13:14

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…)

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.


djerome commented on 2013-02-27 15:23

Updated. Thanks for your comment.

WorMzy commented on 2013-02-27 14:49

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".

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

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

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


dracorp commented on 2012-11-26 16:33

Let disown package. I can adopt it.

jfsaulais commented on 2011-07-23 21:38

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 :)
