libnetsnmp.so.15 error

after installing some cool nagios snmp plugins from nagios-snmp, i ran into a little netsnmp issues

$ ./check_snmp_process 
./check_snmp_process: error while loading shared libraries: libnetsnmp.so.15: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

lovely error….

so lets check what the dep’s are:

$ ldd check_snmp_process 
        linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xffffe000)
        libnetsnmp.so.15 => not found
        libm.so.6 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libm.so.6 (0xb7f95000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6 (0xb7e53000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xb7fcf000)

ok, lets make sure that it is installed

1) try installing/re-installing Net::SNMP :
$ sudo perl -MCPAN -e shell
cpan> install Net::SNMP

and make sure that net-snmp is installed or configured correctly.
see net-snmp for help.

2) now lets hunt it down:

$ sudo find / -name libnetsnmp.so*

3) now lets just link:

$ sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/libnetsnmp.so.15 /usr/lib/libnetsnmp.so.15

4) test:

$ ./check_snmp_process 
Set hostname or IP !
