Checkmk Edition Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 1.4.0p35 1.5.0b9 1.6.0b1
Level Trivial Change
Class Bug Fix
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.
