Description Randy Holmes 2014-07-31 19:32:40 UTC
Description of problem:
May I please request getting Logcheck compiled to run on CentOS 7?

Comment 1 Mike 2014-12-12 18:52:53 UTC
This is something I need as well. I imagine as CentOS 7 gets more and more usage, the requests for this will grow quite a bit.

Comment 2 Randy Holmes 2015-01-02 03:21:22 UTC
It used to be that RedHat was proud of their server security.  Not having a tool that can monitor logs effectively, casts doubts on that claim.

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2015-01-05 16:15:19 UTC
logcheck-1.3.15-2.el7 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 7.

Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2015-01-06 02:08:57 UTC
Package logcheck-1.3.15-2.el7:
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora EPEL 7 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=epel-testing logcheck-1.3.15-2.el7'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).

Comment 5 Randy Holmes 2015-01-06 03:53:25 UTC
Perhaps needs to be "yum install" rather than "yum update".
Then it fails - Requires: perl-mime-construct.

Comment 6 Randy Holmes 2015-01-07 03:10:01 UTC
Is perl-mime-construct available anywhere?

Comment 7 Matthias Runge 2015-01-07 07:16:07 UTC
lots of other deps missing. I'm working on that.

Comment 8 Fedora Update System 2015-01-07 11:21:53 UTC
perl-IPC-Signal-1.00-13.el7 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 7.

Comment 9 Fedora Update System 2015-01-07 12:11:22 UTC
perl-Proc-WaitStat-1.00-13.el7 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 7.

Comment 10 Fedora Update System 2015-01-07 12:20:44 UTC
perl-mime-construct-1.11-13.el7 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 7.

Comment 11 Matthias Runge 2015-01-07 12:30:11 UTC
liblockfile still misses a rebuild. I hope I can get this done today or tomorrow, depending on when I get the SCM request processed.

Comment 12 Fedora Update System 2015-01-07 13:19:25 UTC
liblockfile-1.08-18.el7 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 7.

Comment 13 Randy Holmes 2015-01-07 14:28:13 UTC
Tried to install perl-mime-construct

warning: user mockbuild does not exist - using root

Comment 14 Matthias Runge 2015-01-08 09:03:18 UTC
not sure, what you did:

Comment 15 Randy Holmes 2015-01-08 10:25:38 UTC
I downloaded perl-mime-construct separately and installed it.
Just tested with a fresh install of Centos 7 and your logcheck installed.  Much happiness!

I won't be able to play with it much for a few days, but many thanks.

Comment 16 Randy Holmes 2015-01-17 03:13:22 UTC
Having a play, clean install of CentOS 7 minimal.  I get this, and /tmp/logcheck.* doesn't exist.

Comment 17 Randy Holmes 2015-01-18 03:11:48 UTC
Looks like it needs syslog-ng with a few edits.

not necessarily. You could use rsyslog as well. Take care, you modify logrotate rules to make sure, your logfiles to be checked are owned by group adm.
