I can see it running on unstable10x, but on unstable10s,

svcs | grep gmon

shows nothing.

Also, which machine will run the web interface (CSWgangliaweb)?  I see a
list of the PHP scripts if I navigate to
it seems that Apache is not 100% happy, it should automatically load
index.php.  I built a fresh Solaris 10 x86 install in a VM today and
deployed CSWgangliaweb and it worked instantly, is there possibly some
legacy configuration in your Apache or PHP settings?

Also, the package I put out yesterday was a big broken, the ones I put
out today are much better.

Funny you should say that, it is exactly the same request that I got
from the UNIX support team when I was working on Ganglia full time in
