rrdtool not installing on cPanel

Today I have ordered new cPanel/WHM server (CentOS 6.3) but it had problems with rrdtool and not reporting bandwidth usage. When I wanted to see the usage in cPanel I would get error saying “RRDTOOL is missing, please install rrdtool with a prefix of /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty!“.

Goolge helped me to find me a solution – to run


But that produced the error

Using catalogs: /etc/sgml/sgml-docbook-3.1-1.0-51.el6.cat
Using stylesheet: /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.14/docbook-utils.dsl#print
Working on: /usr/local/cpanel/src/3rdparty/gpl/fontconfig-2.6.0/doc/local-fontconfig-devel.sgml
nsgmls:(invalid location):E: invalid filename ""

gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/cpanel/src/3rdparty/gpl/fontconfig-2.6.0'
gmake: *** [all] Error 2

and I would get the same thing trying to restart the cPanel service…

service cpanel restart

I was stuck with no idea how to solve this and what that gibberish code really means..
So I had to Goooooooogle some more, and I found a simple but working solution:

The solution is to run:

yum remove docbook-utils

and after that


That would remove docbook that is causing problems and other command would then install it properly.
And after that rrdtool should work just fine.
