Description Jim Radford 2004-11-21 12:01:26 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)

'logwatch --print --archives' doesn't search log archives because
logwatch is not configured to use the location that Red Hat chooses
for log archives.

It should open for example "maillog.1" but instead tries to open
"archiv/maillog.1" which doesn't exist.
