Looks like in revision 4692 html_split_string was added to host.php for the System line. This causes only the last 70 characters of the sysDescr to be displayed. I'm not sure if I like this new default behavior.

Wouldn't a configuration setting be better?

Why the last 70 characters and not the first 70?

The spine Windows download link doesn't work, and there's no PIA 2.3 as far as I can see... looking good aside from that ;-)

Ya, the patch had the correct version, but the prepatched files did not (only 2 files changed from v2.2). The version of my site has been updated to the correct version.

Nor from my bit of the UK. mirror.cactiusers.org resolves to 209.189.228.150 for me, just in case there's some screwy GeoIP stuff going on.

There is an error in cdef.php that prevents the CDEF page from being displayed.

It reports the following error:

Code:

Notice: Undefined variable: get_request_var_request in /usr/local/cacti/cdef.php on line 550

Fatal error: Function name must be a string in /usr/local/cacti/cdef.php on line 550




When checking that line, it appears that there is an extra $ sign in front of the last "get_request_var_request" function call. The line reads:

Code:

   Showing Rows " . ((read_config_option("num_rows_device")*(get_request_var_request("page")-1))+1) . " to " . ((($total_rows < read_config_option("num_rows_device")) || ($total_rows < (read_config_option("num_rows_device")*get_request_var_request("page")))) ? $total_rows : (read_config_option("num_rows_device")*$get_request_var_request("page"))) . " of $total_rows [$url_page_select]




When I removed the $ from the front of that last "get_request_var_request", the page displays correctly.

I found an error with the Graph Template page. I can recreate the error by selecting a Graph Template and then deleting one of the Graph Item Inputs. After it has been deleted, I get an error when I try to go back to one of the Graph Items that originally used that input and trying to save it.

The error message it generates:

Code:


Notice: Undefined variable: db_conn in /usr/local/cacti/lib/database.php on line 243

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /usr/local/cacti/lib/database.php:243) in /usr/local/cacti/graph_templates_items.php on line 205



It appears that the error only occurs when trying to save this one item, but it does correctly update the Graph Item Inputs and add the input back into the list. If I go back one page and then try to save again it works without issue.
