Torrus and SMF

I was able to compile the current RRDtool 1.2 Release Canidate, install
the required perl modules and Torrus without any issues. I was also able
to setup the configs, do the device discoveries and database compilation.
Instead of manually starting Torrus and setting it up as a legacy service
I created my first SMF manifest and imported it. I was expecting it to be
at least a little bit more complicated than editing an XML file, moving
the start/stop script to the right place and running svccfg -v
import /var/svc/manifest/application/torrus.xml
The online and
offline functions appear to be working quite well.... Unfortunately the
RRDTool 1.2 Release Canidate perl shared bindings are another problem. I
can however report that when the start method fails the system runs the
stop method. Unfortunately I don't think I will have any real time
to work on it until next week. Maybe I will just try a slightly older
rrdtool snapshot.
Trying an older snapshot is no good because I
get an error from configure telling me that my compiler does not support
IEEE math out of the box. So I am back to trying again later when I can
think about the problems.
