# (this came from my tarball, I couldn't find an md5 or sha1sum on the

# I use --disable-nls because I only read/write English (well), if that
# is not the case for you, leave that off

# Configure and build it
./configure --disable-nls

# Now become root to install it

# Clean up old installations of RRDtool that are installed
# under /opt
find /opt -maxdepth 1 -type d -name "rrdtool-*" -exec rm -r {} \;

# Install the new one
make install
ln -sf /opt/rrdtool-1.4.7 /opt/rrdtool

# Note: The default installation path is /opt/rrdtool-* now.  If you
# have scripts and such that look for it as /usr/local/rrdtool, you
# may want to just create a symlink pointing there:
# ln -sf /opt/rrdtool /usr/local/rrdtool

# If you want to add RRDtool's bin directory to your PATH and man directory
# to your MANPATH (log out and log in for it to take effect):
cat << EOF > /etc/profile.d/rrdtool.sh
export PATH=\$PATH:/opt/rrdtool/bin
export MANPATH=\$MANPATH:/opt/rrdtool/share/man
chmod 755 /etc/profile.d/rrdtool.sh

# Become yourself again

# Update PATH and MANPATH in your current (non-root) shell - or just
# log out and back in again:
echo $PATH | grep -q "/opt/rrdtool/bin" ||
export PATH=$PATH:/opt/rrdtool/bin
echo $MANPATH | grep -q "/opt/rrdtool/share/man" ||
export MANPATH=$MANPATH:/opt/rrdtool/man

mkdir -p -m 0700 installed/mrtg

# perldoc /opt/rrdtool/share/doc/rrdtool-1.4.7/txt/rrdtool.pod

# If you ever want to uninstall RRDtool, run this:
test -L /opt/rrdtool && rm /opt/rrdtool
test -L /usr/local/rrdtool && rm /usr/local/rrdtool
find /opt -maxdepth 1 -type d -name "rrdtool-*" -exec rm -r {} \;
