Description Martin Frodl 2015-12-02 02:44:52 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.
