munin: "load" plugin uses bad echo command

Reported by:… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.1.2
Keywords: haspatch Cc:
Port: munin


The "load" plugin currently uses echo -n in a script executed by /bin/sh, which is not an available option in this builtin.

The attached patch substitutes the -n option with a \c at the end of the string.

Summary: "load" plugin in munin uses bad echo commandmunin: "load" plugin uses bad echo command

Since this changes a file that ends up getting installed, the revision should be increased.

It looks like the load plugin isn't the only plugin that uses "echo -n"; as far as I can tell all of the following plugins do:

  • id
  • load
  • netopia
  • ntp_kernel_err
  • ntp_kernel_pll_freq
  • ntp_kernel_pll_off
  • qmailscan
  • qmailscan-simple
  • snort_alerts
  • snort_bytes_pkt
  • snort_drop_rate
  • snort_pattern_match
  • snort_pkts
  • snort_traffic
  • squeezebox_

Instead of manually fixing these, we should probably just update to a newer version. According the ChangeLog, "echo -n" was replaced with "printf" in version 2.0-alpha2; this is the fix we've used in other ports too.
