Description Andreas Karrer 2004-08-10 07:02:55 EDT
Description of problem:
logrotate-3.6 passed the name of the script to rotate as argument 1
to the pre/postrotate scripts. 3.7 does not do that anymore

between logrotate 3.6 and 3.7, system() calls were replaced
by a runScript() routine which uses execlp(). It calls execlp wrongly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 1 Andreas Karrer 2004-08-10 07:07:58 EDT
The second argument of execlp is argv0, the name of the process.
The log file name to be passted to the pre/postrotate script should
be passed as the *3rd* argument.
