Description major 2015-08-18 08:08:49 UTC
/etc/logrotate.d/openvas-scanner from openvas-scanner-5.0.3-3.fc21.x86_64
 has the following postrotate script:

/bin/kill -HUP `pidof openvassd`


This script produces the following erroneous log message when openvassd is not running because the pidof command produces no output for /bin/kill to use:

kill: not enough arguments
error: error running non-shared postrotate script for /var/log/openvas/openvassd.log of '/var/log/openvas/openvassd.log '


The postrotate script should probably be something like the following:

/usr/bin/killall -HUP openvassd > /dev/null 2>&1 || true

Hello,
thanks for spotting. Updated in rawhide and 23.
It doesn't seems to be so urgent for 22,21 as the error manifests only when not running the process. To 22,21 it will be pushed with next update of openvas-scanner - if any.
