Description Jesse Keating 2007-10-06 10:42:22 EDT
Now that yum logs when it installs/removes things to the system log, actions done on behalf of upd-instroot are winding up in the system log. I'm not sure if this should be "fixed" in upd-instroot or if yum should avoid logging if --installroot is used.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-09 11:46:32 EDT
There's nothing we can do about it in upd-instroot as it stands. Seth -- does it make sense to just allow disabling the syslogging? Or should we do something more clever
Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2007-10-09 19:33:17 EDT
I'd say leave the logging on and just add the option of listing the installroot in the log output if it is NOT '/' I think Icon submitted a patch for something like that a long time back and it just got passed over. so something like: Oct 5 10:57:33 cutter yum: Installed: zsh - 4.3.4-3.fc8.i386 - /my/chroot/ that way they're tracked and easy to distinguish.

After talking about this on yum-devel the rough consensus was 'god this sucks there's no nice answer' and we shelved it for a while. I think the easiest thing might be just to turn off syslog/filelog in certain events.

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2008-05-13 23:20:09 EDT
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA. More information and reason for this action is here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 9 Jan Hutař 2008-08-06 09:31:31 EDT
What about adding "--disable-logging" option?
Comment 10 James Antill 2009-03-06 14:28:57 EST
Ok this is now fixed upstream. You can specify a syslog_device as part of YumBase().preconf ... if that doesn't exist, then syslogging isn't setup.
