|Check_MK Edition||Check_MK Raw Edition (CRE)|
|Level||1 - Trivial Change|
|Compatibility||Compatible - no manual interaction needed|
The debian agent package shipped with Check_MK (located in share/check_mk/agent/*.deb) was not compatible with older Debian/Ubuntu version because it used xz as compression algorithm for the control files.
When trying to install such a package an error like this occurred:
dpkg-deb: error: archive 'check-mk-agent_1.4.0p34-1_all.deb' contains not understood data member control.tar.xz, giving up
We have now changed the compression of the whole package to gzip which should make the package compatible to such systems again.
