27_hobbit_files_ifexist.patch Add "IFEXIST" patch to hobbit-clients.cfg/files test
Bernd Zeimetz <> yes 2015-10-30
30_prefer-packaged-temp-plugin-over-unpackaged-devmon.patch prefer temp plugin over temp values from devmon hobbit-plugins ships a temp plugin which supports putting temperature
data into RRD and showing them as graphs. But the latter doesn't work
if "temp=devmon" is listed in TEST2RRD.
That setting is meant for gathering temperatures from SNMP via the
not packaged devmon (
So for now we prefer working shipped plugins over supporting
non-packaged add-on daemons.

33_526176-ldap.patch #526176: xymon: ldap_init implicitly converted to pointer
Our automated buildd log filter[1] detected a problem that is likely to
cause your package to segfault on architectures where the size of a
pointer is greater than the size of an integer, such as ia64 and amd64.

Function `ldap_init' implicitly converted to pointer at test-ldap.c:25

This is often due to a missing function prototype definition.
For more information, see [2].

Though it is guaranteed that this codepath will cause a segfault on certain
architectures, it is not guaranteed that this codepath would ever be executed
(e.g., if the returned pointer is never dereferenced). However, this bug
does prevent the ia64 buildd from successfully building this package, resulting
in a practical FTBFS issue and warranting the serious severity.

The libldap API has been updated and many functions used by the ldap
plugin are now deprecated. This package should either update to the
new API or define LDAP_DEPRECATED to continue using the deprecated

This patch implements the lazy solution.

90_reproducible-build.patch fix reproducible build on merged-usr vs non-merged systems Andreas Henriksson <> no debian
92_ntpdate_ntpdig.patch Use "ntpdig -t 1" as a ntpdate replacement ntpdate (from package ntpsec-ntpdate) is only a shell wrapper around ntpdig,
which maps "ntpdate -u -q -p 1" to "ntpdig -t 1" and warns about obsolete
option "-p".
Using ntpdig directly saves a shell call.
