Title:Nagios Makefile permissions for init script on FreeBSD
FAQ ID:F0373
Submitted By: 
Last Updated:06/15/2006

Description:Elmo Melo noted that there is a problem in the Nagios Makefile when running under FreeBSD 6.1. Specifically, the group permissions for the init script are set to 'root' instead of 'wheel'. There is no 'root' group in FreeBSD.  

Solution:Edit the Makefile manually and change the value of the INIT_OPTS variable to be: 'INIT_OPTS=-o root -g wheel' instead of 'INIT_OPTS=-o root -g root'. 

Keywords:freebsd group root wheel init
