What is an active CentOS6 / RHEL6 repository providing icinga?

alexschomb asked:

There are several CentOS6 repositories listed in the wiki and I checked nearly all of them. Only RPMForge provides icinga / icinga-web, but in v1.7.2 which is fairly outdated and contains several bugs. (e.g. status map not working with child/parent hosts) I do know that I just could compile it myself, but that would make it quite harder to maintain and keep up-to-date.

Are there any other CentOS6 / RHEL6 repos that offer newer versions of icinga-web?

My answer:

Not long ago I went looking for Icinga RPM packages, and could not find a repository (that looked reputable) containing them, so I went to build them myself. Fortunately icinga and icinga-web contain their own spec files which you can use as a starting point:

rpmbuild -ts icinga-1.8.*.tar.gz
rpmbuild -ts icinga-web-1.8.*.tar.gz

mock -r epel-6-x86_64 ~/rpmbuild/SRPMS/icinga-1.8.*.src.rpm
mock -r epel-6-x86_64 ~/rpmbuild/SRPMS/icinga-web-1.8.*.src.rpm
