Hi

I just installed nagios et al[1] in my Centos-5.2 (x86). When I try to 
test the configuration file it fails[2] with the message "Unexpected 
token or statement(...)".

The line is:
command[notify-by-email]=/usr/bin/printf "$OUTPUT$" | /bin/mail -s 
'$SERVICESTATE$ alert for $HOSTALIAS$/$SERVICEDESC$' $CONTACTEMAIL$
But if I comment this line, then I got the same message in the next 
line. I changed the path to printf, because I already have installed.

Is something missing? Are the rpm's enough?

Thanks

Marcelo
