Yup. I just finished building the Net-SNMP package v5.1.2 from the src.rpm file on SourceForge. It's a bit tricky upgrading on RedHat, due to dependency issues, so I'm not sure this implementation is ready for a production server, BUT...
Yes, you're right. Once I get this worked out, I need to update the Makefile.PL. Right now, I think it accepts SNMP >= 4.1.2...
WARNING! Do not confuse the Net-SNMP libraries with the Net::SNMP Perl module available on CPAN!
To tell the difference:
Yeah, it sucks, but at least one can tell the difference. The Net-SNMP module came first, but at the time, the library was called "UCD-SNMP". The name change make sense from the C standpoint, but is unfortunate from a Perl standpoint.
Anyway, the thing built, with a little tweak to the specfile, and installed with --nodeps. A little more work and I'm back to the original problem. :-)
Update: To get the net-snmp-5.1.2-1.src.rpm to build properly and install safely, I had to...
So far, Ethereal still works (and decodes SNMP packets properly), and my t/Basic.t no longer fails. Woo hoo!
