While I haven't done it from apt, or version 2 for that matter, the
thing with Nagios was always that it wouldn't work 'as shipped' - you
have to do at least some configuration to get output at all. Take a
look at the source install instructions and just start right after the
'make install' step :-)
Version 1 required altering apache configs, setting up paths to the
various executables required and editing nagios.conf
While it's possible that apache and path settings were done by apt, I
doubt nagios.conf is useable out of the box. There are too many
different ways to use it, with too many different network styles
around for a one size fits all starting point.
PS The nagios mailing list was helpful when I was last on it.... if
I did my homework first.
I know that's a bit of a flippant answer, but the docs on-line should
help you get started.
