Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1293624
Should not change the case of $logdir
Last modified: 2016-11-03 23:30:35 EDT
Description of problem:
The issue described below, which was fixed years ago as bug 205104 in RHEL 4, still persists in RHEL 7. Tested with the --logdir command-line option as well as the LogDir configuration directive.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #205104 +++
If you have $logdir=/XXX in your logwatch.conf then it will instead try to
access /xxx. Currently the only way to access logs in a directory that contains
capital letters seems to be creating a symlink with only lowercase letters. EG
"ln -s /XXX /xxx".
Since the problem described in this bug report should be
resolved in a recent advisory, it has been closed with a
resolution of ERRATA.
