Package: snmp
Version: 5.3.1-7
Severity: minor


I'm using snmptrap to send some traps to network devices. It spits out weird
messages on the command line:

hille at kloetzer:~ $ snmptrap -v 1 -c <comm> . 6 3 1000 I 2
read_config_store open failure on /var/lib/snmp/snmpapp.conf
read_config_store open failure on /var/lib/snmp/snmpapp.conf
read_config_store open failure on /var/lib/snmp/snmpapp.conf
hille at kloetzer:~ $ ls -l /var/lib/snmp/snmpapp.conf
ls: /var/lib/snmp/snmpapp.conf: No such file or directory

Beside of that the traps arrives at the destination -> the functionality of
the program is not affected.
