MRTG tries to create files even when '--check' is specified

Reported by: human Owned by: somebody
Version: Keywords: MRTG --check
Cc: Niall.oReilly+mrtg@…


keadeen(noreilly)23: LANG=C mrtg --check mrtg-core-switches.conf

2008-02-06 15:02:23: ERROR: Creating templock mrtg-core-switches.conf_l_21172: Permission denied at /usr/bin/mrtg line 1793.

keadeen(noreilly)24: fgrep -i '$VERSION =' /usr/bin/mrtg

$VERSION = "2.15.2";


I have read access in the directory where I tried to run the test. That should be enough.

you user has no rights to write to the conf directory. Not much mrtg can do about it. Please use the support mailinglist.
