The munin-node package looks good - we're using it in several production servers now with no issues.
Thanks for hosting this Dag.

Perfect, had some free time and I looked at the original package and made 
a few cosmetic changes and one big change (/var/www/munin).

I kept the release to 1 so that the official one still replaces the 
RPMforge one, but I would like munin users to test my package thoroughly 
and let me know what their experience is.

Ingvar, please let me know your opinions about the modified SPEC file.
You can find it here:


I have a few for you.

1. Since the man-pages are installed as-is, shouldn't the scripts in 
/usr/share/munin not be moved to /usr/bin as well ?

2. Not sure if you like the Apache config, but it fits with all the other 
web-related projects. It allows to run munin from a seperate virtual host 
instead of being in the default DocumentRoot.

3. I need to know what other requirements there are (like eg. perl) since 
I now provide packages for EL2 and I doubt they will work.

Thanks in advance,
