Can 0.8.7i +PIA be packaged for 10.04 and up

Asked by James


It doesn't appear that 0.8.7i is officially packaged for any production release of Ubuntu. It was released in Dec 2011.

Release notes:

Important Security Fixes
* SQL injection issues
* Cross-site scripting issues

In addition the Plugin Architecture (PIA) patch is provided in a new source code release, as noted here:

Previously, PIA had to be manually patched. PIA provides added useful functionality including Threshold reporting.

Interestingly, the EPEL repo for Redhat/Fedora has released 0.8.7i but it is without the PIA. They are treating Cacti+PIA as a fork:
