Hi all,

RRDTool Says:

ERROR: bad format for GPRINT in '      Current:'

I can't see any extra spaces in the template. I looked on the forum
and this issue has been addressed before:


So I tried to apply the patch to 0.8.7b, but no joy. All the official
patches do work though.
I can't use the stock Ubuntu package as I need the plugin
architecture. Is there a complete package
available somewhere? Either source or .deb?

patching file rrd.php
Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected!  Skipping patch.
2 out of 2 hunks ignored -- saving rejects to file rrd.php.rej
