Suse:/srv/www/htdocs/cacti # tar zxvf cacti-cactid-0.8.6i.tar.gz
Suse:/srv/www/htdocs/cacti # cd cacti-cactid-0.8.6i/
Suse:/srv/www/htdocs/cacti/cacti-cactid-0.8.6i # ./configure
encounter a error:
configure: error: cannot find SNMP headers. Use –with-snmp to specify non-default path.
It seems OpenSuse does not have SNMP headers within installtation DVD. Install cactid latter.
