Description Martin Frodl 2015-12-02 02:46:45 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 #1269244 +++

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.

Attached is a patch to change /etc/logrotate.d/syslog such that syslog-ng
also can use the file unmodified.

A followup report is sent to syslog-ng package to sync with the new version of the file.

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.

attached patch renames conflicting file (in the end name is not significant as main logrotate conf includes all files in /etc/logrotate.d/ ) this way concurrent existence with other syslog packages possible
