Bug Description

Binary package hint: nagios3

As detailed at and

/etc/nagios-plugins/config/disk.cfg needs the arguments [-A -i '.gvfs']

Nagios by default should ignore gvfs - user shouldn't be required to modify a script post-install.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

Which package is providing /etc/nagios-plugins/config/disk.cfg? To find out could you run the following comand:

  dpkg -S /etc/nagios-plugins/config/disk.cfg

Thanks for the bug report. Bug I dont think its a viable solution to exclude .gvfs by default because nagios-plugins is built to be as general as possible.

Would it be an option to add a configuration directory where other packages (i.e. gnome) could announce special mount points that should be ignored?
