Hm, that depends on your setup.. Have you changed the configfile at
`/etc/collectd.conf'? Are you using the `Local' mode? What plugins are
you using? Are there any messages in the syslog?

`dpkg-scanpackage' does not include multiple version of the same
package, which is the reason for them not being included in the
`Packages.gz' file. I didn't get around to upgrade from my homebrown
solution to a `real' one, but I'll try to do this asap. This will
hopefully solve this..

How did they fail?

You can compile with `--enable-debug' to enable debugging output. Since
the code for this hasn't been there from the start the amount of debug
you'll get depends on the module ;)

However, whenever anything significant happends collectd reports this to
`syslog'. If collectd failes and there isn't a note about it in the
syslog please let me know, since I consider this to be a bug..
