The version of cacti-spine in Maverick Meerkat seems to be out of date

Asked by Stephan

I want to use Cacti 0.8.7g on Ubuntu 10.10.

It looks like the version of Spine is 0.8.7e instead of "g" to match.

cacti 0.8.7g-1
cacti-spine 0.8.7e-2build1

When I did a test upgrade, Cacti didn't work, I wonder if it's because of the mismatch.

Has anyone got this version of Cacti working with this version of Spine in Ubuntu 10.10, or is it just me? I'm wondering if the cacti-spine package just wasn't updated for 10.10.

Thanks for your help.

You could log a bug, the package versions (if cacti depends on cacti-spine), should work. I suggest you check your config etc too

When you say you did a test upgrade, what do you mean exactly? What did you upgrade, and how, and what were all the relevant pre-upgrade and post-upgrade versions?

Also, can you be more specific about how Cacti didn't work? How did you run it? Did you get any error messages, or did it silently fail to start, or did it start but not work properly? Before you did the "test upgrade", did it work? What is the functionality provided by the later version that you want (i.e. what motivates you to upgrade it)?

Thanks for the answers.

There was a lack of detail in my request intentionally as the server I'm using is heavily customised.

I just wanted to see if anyone knew if the different versions definitely *wouldn't* work together.

Today I did a fresh install of Cacti on 10.10 with Cacti 0.8.7g-1 and Spine 0.8.7e-2build1 and I'm glad to report that it does work, so the issue I was seeing doesn't seem to be related.

Thanks for the quick replies. I think this can be closed now.
