Hello peeps.

I am most disappointed with the install of nagios.

I have followed the Nagios wiki to the letter.

Is it time to review or remove the Nagios entry, because as it stands, the user will not have a fully functioning nagios.
I have searched around on the internet and because of the various different linux flavours, files are being placed
in totally different folders to the ones which gentoo uses.

I don't understand how for some users it "will just work" if following the quick install guide. It doesn't on my box.

This is a fresh Gentoo install ( I jumped to 64bit a few days ago and started from scratch ).

There seems to be no reference to starting nagios using systemd, only the openrc method.

Running
Code:
/usr/sbin/nagios -v /etc/nagios/nagios.cfg

shows no errors with my configuration.

If I run the above with the -d switch, it does NOT run as a daemon.

The apache interface is configured and working.
I have checked permissions and all seems good.

If I have followed the wiki to the letter, then why is it not working?

Am I missing something here?

I don't want this to be another 10 days of my life gone, because I am using gentoo. lol.

Can the author of the Nagios wiki please update the page to inform systemd users they will need
to create a systemd unit file if they wish to run nagios as a daemon?

There is no reference to this on the existing page, and I have just had to do
a crash course on how to create unit files.

The wiki also needs to be updated with regards to the files which MUST be created, and
the appropriate permissions set if nagios is to work properly.
