executing local checks.

* Mon Feb 15 2021
  - fix apparmor profile to allow /run as well as /var/run
* Thu Feb 04 2021 Lars Vogdt <>
  - added nrpe-4.0.4-silence_wrong_package_version_messages.patch
    NRPE logs 'packet version was invalid' and 'Could not read request
    from client' if the NRPE version on the client does not match the
    one on the server side.
    This patch reduces the importance of the log entry to be just
    informal, which should silent most client logs, while it makes
    it still available for debugging.

  - Added function to clean the environment before forking.
    (John Frickson)
  - Added support for optional config file to check_nrpe. With the new SSL
    parameters, the line was getting long. The config file is specified with
    - -config-file=<path> or -f <path> parameters. The config file must look
    like command line options, but the options can be on separate lines. It
    MUST NOT include --config-file (-f), --command (-c) or --args (-a). If any
    options are in both the config file and on the command line, the command line
    options are used.
  - Added "nrpe-uninstall" script to the same directory nrpe get installed to

  - Reworked SSL/TLS. See the file for full info. (John Frickson)
  - Added support for version 3 variable sized packets up to 64KB. nrpe will
    accept either version from check_nrpe. check_nrpe will try to send a
    version 3 packet first, and fall back to version 2. check_nrpe can be forced
    to only send version 2 packets if the switch `-2` is used. (John Frickson)
