Config problems with RRDTool

Hi,

I would really like to get NetMRG up and running but I am running into a problem with RRDTool.

I have compiled it from source and installed it in /usr/local/rrdtool/bin but when I run configure for NetMRG, it says it cannot find rrdtool. Here's the error message

checking for rrdtool... no
configure error Couldn't find rrdtool. Please verify that it is installed.


I can't figure out from the help where to tell configure about rrdtool's location.

You're right, there doesn't appear to be a way to override the default locations in the configure script yet. I've started bug#179 to address that.

In the meantime, adding a symlink for the rrdtool binary in either /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin should do the trick.

Is /usr/local/rrdtool/bin in your PATH? Running 'which rrdtool' (w/o quotes) at a shell prompt should verify this. The configure script looks for the rrdtool binary in your PATH, so I'm assuming that's the problem.

But...there should be a config option to specify the rrdtool binary location. That option should be added by the next release.

Adding rrdtool to /usr/local/bin (as a symlink) was the trick. I think I had only tried /sbin and /usr/sbin so I feel a little stupid but I really appreciate the help.
