Can't install NRPE



  • Hi
    I've made an update from pfsense 2.3.1_5 to 2.3.2 and after this update I see a menupoint called "NRPEv2" but when I click on this point I get the message "No valid package defined". Also I see an service "nrpe2" but is stopped and is not startable.
    When I look into the Installed Packages, I don't see NRPE. When I will install NRPE I get following Message:

    Installing pfSense-pkg-nrpe…
    Updating pfSense-core repository catalogue...
    pfSense-core repository is up-to-date.
    Updating pfSense repository catalogue...
    pfSense repository is up-to-date.
    All repositories are up-to-date.

    The following 2 package(s) will be affected (of 0 checked):

    New packages to be INSTALLED:
    pfSense-pkg-nrpe: 2.3.1_1 [pfSense]
    nrpe-ssl: 2.15_6 [pfSense]

    Number of packages to be installed: 2

    install: not found
    pkg: PRE-INSTALL script failed
    Failed

    I've made a backup from the configuration, make a new installation from pfsense and restore the configuration -> same result.

    What can I do?

    Thanks for your help!



  • I've found a solution. It's a bug reportet by https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/6643
    Only execute the following line and the installation works:
    tar xv -C / -f /usr/local/share/pfSense/base.txz ./usr/bin/install

    Thanks.
