OCSInventory-NG UnixAgent on TC9
« on: July 11, 2018, 01:57:38 PM »
Hi folks.

Would it be possible to create an extension to OcsInventory agent? - https://github.com/OCSInventory-NG/UnixAgent

It's pretty useful to track hardware info on old thinclients(bios version, serial number, network info, disk, ram, etc). Support for 32 and 64 bit would be great.

Some of the software dependencies are already available as extensions, but there are some missing perl libraries to make this software work as expected(see github link)

Just a follow-up: Not every dependency is needed.

Linux agents will need the bare minimum:

This should be good for most environments that don't need advanced features like ocsangent running as a daemon, ipmi data, ssl communication between agents and server,  advanced snmp data parsing...

net-snmp-perl removed from 8.x and 9.x repos as it is compiled against perl5 from the 7.x repo - this was missed since it didn't follow the perl module perl_xxx_yyy naming convention

Just as an example, perl_lwp looks to have about 25 deps...

Hi Juanito.

Yeah. I've spent the last days installing deps of these deps using cpan and it does not seems to be an easy task.

Meanwhile, to make the software work i've managed to run cpan as tc user, and created a custom PERL5LIB and @INC inside the user's home.

I'm not proud of this solution, but now i have the software installed inside my home and not scattered around /usr/share, /usr/lib, etc.

using cpan and it does not seems to be an easy task.

you may be interested in cpanm which I built for 64 bit  ....warning I am not a real coder and the following does not build one package
I will look at it later but  this is just a teaser for you

22 distributions installed

to see what got installed system wide so far ignoring UUID

Code: [Select]
Available commands are:
   l            - List all installed modules
   m <module>   - Select a module
   q            - Quit the program
cmd? l
Installed modules are:

from my 64 info we have
DEPENDENCIES will be seen in log if install fails
                eg  sudo su && cpanm Glib
                log at /root/.cpanm/build.log
                (snip) Package gobject-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path 
                (so) load  gobject-introspection-dev and repeat install command
                (build.log will change and old build.log will be under ..work)

but there is a lot more there too included the downloads which includes data-UUID* .tar.gz

Ok so after reading log....its morning here....the UUID was missing gcc...oops heh heh  so load compiletc and repeat that cpanm then we get

Code: [Select]
Installed modules are:

if you need to package them....etc...you may need to run

Code: [Select]
touch /tmp/mark
I can't find my build script .....it was submitted but maybe my fav TCZ checker forgot it

if interested in building it to help you for 32 bit here is a link to it, with luck
