HowTo apply the Smokeping Patches
To apply the patch, execute the following command :
cd /opt/ wget http://blog.network-outsourcing.de/wp-content/uploads/smokeping_nmid_2.6.11.zip unzip smokeping_nmid_2.6.11.zip patch -p1 -N < smokeping_nmid_2.6.11.patch
In case it asks for a filename, use smokeping/lib/Smokeping.pm:
patch -p1 -N < smokeping_nmid_2.6.11.patch can't find file to patch at input line 3 Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?

Installation for Alpha version
Install the plugin like any normal Cacti plugin. Then repalce your Cacti 0.8.8b files with the files from the cacti_patches directory.
You should then be able to add smokeping interface graphs to the normal Cacti tree like you would do with any other cacti graph.
