Description Andy Speagle 2015-09-02 13:33:39 EDT
Description of problem:

The bundled logrotate configuration file references the invalid PID file /var/run/syslogd.pid ... it should reference /var/run/syslog-ng.pid

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

By default.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

Since wrong PID file is referenced, logrotate can't HUP syslog-ng when it rotates files.

Expected results:

The correct PID file would allow logrotate to HUP syslog-ng after log rotation.
