	i had a script, but as it failled, i tried via command line_

# /opt/collectd/sbin/collectd -f -C /opt/collectd/etc/collectd-server.conf 
cpufreq plugin: Found 0 CPUs
multimeter plugin: No device found
Initialization of plugin `multimeter' failed with status -1. 
Plugin will be unloaded. 
Exiting normally
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

	I pressed ctrl+C to exit, i can try to debug that crash

	done... its now working!!  :)

	but i still have problems, several rrd graphs show empty (like 
irq), others show a broken image (like swap, error 404), and i dint see 
how to log the HDs IO like in v3... bugs or not implemented?

	also starting the collectd i get a warning about hddtemp:

Plugin `hddtemp' did not register a callback.
Plugin `hddtemp' did not register a callback.

	i have hddtemp running and works fine, also, collectd show it 
compiled the hddtemp... any tip?

	and finally, does v4 server can collect data from v3 clients?
	it would be useful for those like me, using it in several 
machines, it would allow a upgrade without breaking the log. the 
alternative is to upgrade in a new dir in all machines and only 
then stop the v3 and start the new version.

thanks for the help
