Description David Tonhofer 2003-07-23 06:46:17 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0.2)
Gecko/20030208 Netscape/7.02

Description of problem:
When logrotate is configured to 'delaycompress' and also
to 'mailfirst', it tries to find and send off a file ending
in .gz instead of the still uncompressed file.

Example: we want handle the HTTPD error logs:

/var/log/httpd/error_log {
    rotate 65
    olddir /var/log/httpd/error_dir
    create 640 root mpfyrun
    mail techies@m-plify.com
        /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl graceful
        # there will be some activity on the saved log, so
        # don't compress
        # if you want to compress, sleep for 600 or use delaycompress
        # echo "Rotated httpd error_log"

When this is run, logrotate gives an error:

sh: /var/log/httpd/error_dir/error_log.1.gz: No such file or directory
Failed to mail /var/log/httpd/error_dir/error_log.1.gz to techies@m-plify.com!

How reproducible:

Expected Results:  
The still uncompressed file should be sent out. I expect the actual
code handling 'mailfirst' should not care about whether there is a compressed or
uncompressed file at place 1 in the logfile sequence.

Please test the package in ftp://people.redhat.com/sopwith/logrotate-3.6.10-1.i386.rpm
and let me know if it fixes the problem.
Comment 2 David Tonhofer 2003-07-25 04:13:43 EDT
Installed ftp://people.redhat.com/sopwith/logrotate-3.6.10-1.i386.rpm
on RedHat 7.3

--> Problem is fixed, all right!
