Question, extending snmpd
I have a private MIB for a custom hardware platform that I need to
include in an snmp agent on my Woody Debian/Linux OS. I have been
reading up on using mib2c to create a .h and .c file. Then compiling
this output into the snmpd agent. My goal is to have a local
snmpd_xxx.custom.i386.deb package that I can include in a production
system without needing to carry around the snmpd development
What I really would like to know is-
1- Is there already a FAQ on the Debian way to extend snmpd?
2- At what level should I capture my changes?
A- Capture my PRIVATE-MIB.txt into a custom-source.deb group.
B- Capture my .h & .c files into a custom-source.deb group.
C- Capture my snmpd into a custom-bin.deb file.
3- What is the Debian way to move through the steps listed above?
A- Where should I locate the MIB?
B- What snmp-dev packages do I need?
C- How do I repackage this into a binary .deb?
4- Am I missing anything? (Like an easier way to do this thing?)
Any answers of RTFM will be gladly accepted as long as they come with a
reference to the location of the FM :-)
