install newer cacti versions via apt-get on 18.04 LTS

#1 Post by Axel90 » Fri Aug 23, 2019 5:04 am

Hey netniv, Paul, all
I thought I create a new discussion. I would like to install a new cacti vm.
My OS is Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS.
apt-cache policy cacti says that the candidate version would be 1.1.38.

Is it not possible to install 1.2.x via apt-get via the ubuntu repositories?

@Paul: I had visited your cacti ppa and noticed that you haven't created newer versions since a while. Don't you do that anymore?

Thank you both.

If you are looking for a package method of getting Cacti onto Ubuntu, that is normally via Paul's repos though I haven't heard from Paul in a while so I don't know what he's been up to.

If you are willing to use sources instead, you can download 1.2.x directly from Cacti.net or use the 1.2.x branch from GitHub (develop is about to become 1.3)

Yes, I have been busy with the Debian release of buster as I am now a member of the release team.

I'll probably work on my Cacti backlog in the coming weeks, I'm working on fixing 1.2.26 now in Debian unstable and the translation bug in Ubuntu Eoan.

Didn't realise you've become part of the release team itself, congrats on that :)

Once you've tested the i18n branch then I will merge it into 1.2.x ready for the 1.2.7 release.
