At the time of this writing the latest version of Nagios is 3.3.1. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and have used
apt-get update; apt-get install nagios3 to end up with version 3.2.0.
I know there are a lot of instructions out there for manually compiling and installing the latest version of Nagios, but is there a way that I can have use
apt-get to do it - perhaps editing the
/etc/apt/sources.list file or something like that?
It's been a little while since I asked this question, now I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 instead of 10.04 but I'm disappointed to report that an older version of Nagios (3.2.3) is loaded on the system instead of the current release (3.4.1) if you use the
apt-get install method.
I've opened a bounty hoping for more information. Please see the notes below in the bounty block.
