Problem With SNMP Rpm

Hello everyone,

Im trying to configure SNMP to use Kerberos authentication, but im having some trouble. The standard package of snmp dont have the kerberos module included, then i needed to create a new package. So i found the last CentOS
snmp source rpm, version “net-snmp-5.7.2-24.el7_3.2.x86_64”, and modified the .spec file to generate a new rpm with the kerberos module.

But in the middle of compilation process, this happens:

*checking for security modules to use… ksm usm*

*checking for krb5-config… /bin/krb5-config*

*checking for krb5… checking for krb5_init_context in -lkrb5… yes*


*checking for heimdal… no*

*checking to see which crypto API we need to use… checking for krb5_c_encrypt… yes*

*(cached) old MIT crypto API*

This “old MIT crypto API” dont happen if i use the same configuration with the standard snmp tar.gz And that is the problem, i need to receive “new MIT crypto API” to work. I have the Kerberos properly installed and running.

Sorry if this looks confusing, but what im trying to say is that i guess this rpm is broken and need update. I used the same configuration with the rpm and the tar.gz . The tar.gz worked and the rpm didn’t. This problem is for the ksm module, not the entire rpm is broken.

Someone know who i cant contact to warn about this? Or if there is a new version out there. I searched for a new version but i didn’t find anything. I used the 5.7.2
rpm and 5.7.3 tar.gz

Thanks for the attention. Lucas.
