Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1287469
let rsyslog & syslog-ng play nice together: sync /etc/logrotate.d/syslog
Last modified: 2016-01-16 15:37:14 EST
Same issue encountered when upgrading to rsyslog-7.4.7-12.el7.x86_64 with syslog-ng-3.5.6-1.el7.x86_64 installed.
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1269245 +++
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.
