Description Pekka Savola 2000-07-07 08:00:35 EDT
Linuxconf logrotate.d entries need missingok or equivalent in them; if
you never use linuxconf, root will still get mailed his dosage of errors..
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-07-19 10:20:14 EDT
The %post script for linuxconf creates these logs, so they're there.
Comment 2 Pekka Savola 2000-07-24 07:15:50 EDT
(beta4, linuxconf-1.19r1-7)

Clean install is fine; upgrade is not.

After an _upgrade_ of RH60 and/or RH62, I got mails like:
errors occured while rotating /var/log/htmlaccess.log

stat of /var/log/htmlaccess.log failed: No such file or directory
errors occured while rotating /var/log/netconf.log

stat of /var/log/netconf.log failed: No such file or directory

# rpm -V linuxconf
SM5....T c /etc/conf.linuxconf

This might be caused by the fact that in RH6x, those files are in package list,
but in betas they should be touched in post-install.
Comment 3 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-07-24 09:32:08 EDT
Okay, that's bad, because that means an older version of the package
is *removing* that file on uninstall.  I'll have to add a trigger to get around
Comment 4 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-07-24 09:40:19 EDT
Trigger should be in linuxconf-1.19r1-9 and later.
