I noticed, just received the 3.6.0 version. I noticed that it refuces to start
due to a missing mysql library. In my setup that's not a big supprise, as I use
postgresql and not mysql. (so it's not installed)

Is there a way to let collectd check is it's installed and when not found, skip
the mysql routines? (or was I just a bit fast and was the install fo an
incomplete set filesets?)

I just did a roll-back to the 3.5.1 version due to this.

Found one. ;-)

Oh, can I submit a feature request for the ping module? Is it possible to have
it ipv4 and ipv6 capable?
