compiling nagios-plugins error with perl

Postby CarolBrusteredman » Thu May 19, 2022 6:04 am


I'm trying to compile the nagios plugins in a RHEL8 box but it fails and reports an error message when running tools/build_perl_modules

make[2]: Entering directory '/root/nagios-plugins-2.2.1/perlmods'
../tools/build_perl_modules -d /usr/local/nagios/perl -em .
make[2]: ../tools/build_perl_modules: Command not found
make[2]: *** [Makefile:1462: all-local] Error 127
make[2]: Leaving directory '/root/nagios-plugins-2.2.1/perlmods'
make[1]: *** [Makefile:1431: all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/root/nagios-plugins-2.2.1'
make: *** [Makefile:1352: all] Error
I compiled these same nagios plugins in RHEL5, RHEL6 and RHEL7 some time ago with no problem.

The tools/build_perl_modules does EXIST:

# ls -l tools/build_perl_modules
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 9999 Jun 16 12:27 tools/build_perl_modules
In fact, when launched that perl program:

# ../tools/build_perl_modules -d /usr/local/nagios/perl -em .
-bash: ../tools/build_perl_modules: yes: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
This message is because of the shebang line

which is very weird for me. And yet, omegle shagle voojio it worked in previous RHEL releases!

Best regards
