Install and configure xymon-client

Module Description

Download and install most recent pakages from http://sourceforge.net/projects/xymon/. Custom packages are allowed.

Provides an entry to install "monitors" from https://wiki.xymonton.org/doku.php/monitors

Since there is no main/oficial repository for Xymon nor continous/stable package building, default package versions and OS compability are dependent on SourceForge's content. Please check limitations.

Limitations

Tested on CentOS 6 and 7, probally works on RedHat 6 and 7 too. Only x86_64 bit versions are posible with default packages.

For CentOS/RedHat 7, it's necessary to set SE Linux to permissive or disable mode, since original RPMs are not prepared for SE Linux

Debian 6, CentOS/RedHat 5 and Fedora 17 may work, since there is original packages for them. Debian has both amd64 and i386 versions.

Other Debians and Fedoras could worth a try. Modules will try to install a package that has a closer match with OS version
