OCS Inventory on TC 13.x
« on: January 30, 2023, 12:02:42 AM »
Hi There,

i am trying to install OCS Inventory NG Agent 2.x  https://wiki.ocsinventory-ng.org/03.Basic-documentation/Setting-up-the-UNIX-agent-manually-on-client-computers/

I don't think that all the Requirements are in the repository.


PERL 5.8 and higher                      -->  perl5.tcz ?
Perl module XML::Simple               -->  perl_xml_simple.tcz ?
Perl module Compress::Zlib           --> zlib_base-dev.tcz ?
Perl module Net::IP                       --> ?
Perl module LWP::UserAgent          --> ?
Perl module Digest::MD5               --> ?
Perl module Net::SSLeay               --> ?
Perl module Data::UUID                --> ?
dmidecode                                    --> dmidecode.tcz
lspci on Linux and *BSD (pciutils package)   --> libpci.tcz ?
Make utility                                               --> make.tcz
C/C++ compiler like GNU GCC                     --> gcc.tcz


the installed Modules right now:

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

thank you for helping

As per the info file the perl5 extension in tc-13.x is 5.32.0

For the missing perl modules, you can either compile them or install them using cpan

It looks like you need to set your machine to the correct time/date and load the compiletc extension.

I would presume the modules are installed under /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.32/site_perl with perhaps some files under /usr/local/bin - I wouldn't advise adding these files to a backup though as it would slow down booting.

I don't know.

You can try installing ocs inventory with "sudo make DESTDIR=/tmp/pkg install" and then look at /tmp/pkg to see what is installed.

Hi Juanito,

with instmodsh i can create a tar file from the installed Modules.

do you know if i can install the module from the created tar file without using cpan ?

Code: [Select]
instmodsh
Available commands are:
   l            - List all installed modules
   m <module>   - Select a module
   q            - Quit the program
cmd? l
Installed modules are:
   Bundle::NetSNMP
   Ocsinventory::Unix::Agent
   Perl
cmd? m Bundle::NetSNMP
Available commands are:
   f [all|prog|doc]   - List installed files of a given type
   d [all|prog|doc]   - List the directories used by a module
   v                  - Validate the .packlist - check for missing files
   t <tarfile>        - Create a tar archive of the module
   h                  - Display module help
   q                  - Quit the module
Bundle::NetSNMP cmd?

I assume you can, but I’ve never tried.

I guess it depends on how the tar archive was created - if you list the contents, do they include the full path?

For example: usr/local/lib/perl5/5.32/site_perl/XML/Parser/Expat.pm

..or do they contain: XML/Parser/Expat.pm

yes the include the full path when i extract the tar file like

Code: [Select]
tar xvpf Proc_Daemon.tar
tar: removing leading '/' from member names
usr/local/share/man/man3/Proc::Daemon.3
usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/Proc/Daemon.pm
usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/Proc/Daemon.pod

You should be able to test by extracting it in the root directory:
Code: [Select]
cp module.tcz.gz /
cd /
sudo tar xf module.tar.gz

..and then see if the module works.
