Smokeping installation How-to or Tutorial for Debian?


New Member
Dear All,

I'm trying to install smokeping slave on raspberry pi.

After sudo apt-get install smokeping done, i'm running the smokeping with this command ==>

" sudo /usr/sbin/smokeping -master-url= -cache-dir=/var/smokeping/ -shared-secret /var/smokeping/secret.txt "

Then this error comes up ==>

"WARNING: Opening secrets file /etc/smokeping/smokeping_secrets: Permission denied

ERROR: we did not get config from the master. Maybe we are not configured as a slave for any of the targets on the master ?


this is file permission of /etc/smokeping/smokeping_secrets ==>

[email protected] ~ $ ls -lrt /etc/smokeping/smokeping_secrets

-rw-r----- 1 smokeping smokeping 59 Mar 17 2013 /etc/smokeping/smokeping_secrets

anyone can give me a clue what is going on ? I have change the permission with chmod 400 and chmod 600 with no luck.

thanks before
