  1. Hi Mark,
    is it possible to get synagios/nagrestconf get running on DS213+ (FREESCALE QorIQ P1022 PowerPC syno-e500)?

    Kind regards

    1. It should be possible but I haven't got one to test synagios on. If Synology are reading, please send me a QorIQ box! Other than that you'd need to build it yourself, on the DS213+, but I haven't written instructions for that yet. It's a todo item (writing the build instructions) on GitHub Issues (#18) for the next release but I don't have a date yet.

      Sorry I can't be of more help :(

    2. Hi Mark,
      some short instructions may help me, i firm in building nagios on linux. On Synology i havn´t build packages. If you have time please let me know.

    3. If you don't mind, could you sign up to github and request build instructions in the issue there:
