Dell Remote Console Server Software let me count the ways I hate thee. 1) When I downloaded your RedHat version it was in a windows self extracting zip. 2) your installer sucks and cant cope with 64bit machines it would seem 3) when i copy you from elsewhere and try to start you i get the following error message. bobw@host34:~ >/usr/lib/Dell_Remote_Console_Switch_Software/Dell_Remote_Console_Switch_Software An internal LaunchAnywhere application error has occured and this application cannot proceed.

From: Bob Walker Date: 15:46 on 31 Oct 2003 Subject: nagios i now hate nagios with a passion. we had it all workign nicely before but then we changed all our IPs so i thought i would take the oppourtunity while i was rewriting the config files to upgrade the version. This is where the pain started. Basic things now dont work it can mamange to ping a machien once but then fails after that. this is less than optimal in a program where this is a basic function. then to top it all the graphics stuff doesnt work either. libpng warning: Application was compiled with png.h from libpng-1.0.6 libpng warning: Application is running with png.c from libpng-1.2.4 gd-png: fatal libpng error: Incompatible libpng version in application and library [Thu Oct 30 13:29:19 2003] [error] [client 192.168.12.16] Premature end of script headers: /usr/local/nagios/sbin/trends.cgi even though the only png.h which exists on the system is 1.2.4 and then the older versuion doesnt even compile now bah i hate software
