Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1269245
let rsyslog & syslog-ng play nice together: sync /etc/logrotate.d/syslog
Last modified: 2016-07-19 14:07:32 EDT
Description of problem:
syslog-ng and rsyslog both wants to install the file:
To be able to have both excellent loggers installed at the same time
this file must be identical.
I have sent a request to rsyslog package:
to change their version of /etc/logrotate.d/syslog such that syslog-ng
also can use the file unmodified.
Attached is a patch to change /etc/logrotate.d/syslog in syslog-ng
to the same version, this way users of both packages will be happy.
Setup has been tested, install both rsyslog and syslog-ng is now possible, make
it very easy to switch between loggers as users may want.
Logrotate works as before.
Please apply attached patch.

Patch to sync /etc/logrotate.d/syslog
Two months to apply a simple fix?
More fun added: this issue now crashes Fedora 23 installer:
The approach here seems sensible to me, the change is small.
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
