Note: This was tested using Alpine 1.9.1, running under VMware Workstation 5.5.1 build-19175. Host O/S for VMware Windows XP Home SP3. CPU: Intel Atom N270. Note: Mostly due to laziness, didn't find openssl-dev, since apk wasn't available, so SSL support isn't compiled in when following he below steps.

Steps for compilation:

  1. Downloaded nrpe-2.12
  2. apk add alpine-sdk
  3. apk add net-snmp # Wanted for some nrpe plugins
  4. apk add linux-grsec-dev
  5. ./configure --disable-ssl
  6. make all
  7. make install-plugin
  8. make install-daemon
  9. Since sample config didn't compile using above steps, configured the following config for testing:
  • /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_nrpe -n -H
  "NRPE v2.12"

NOW: Compile with SSL support.
