Description Martin Frodl 2015-12-22 08:04:34 EST
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".
