/var/log/lastlog doesn't get rotated
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:56 EST
Description of problem:
The log file: /var/log/lastlog doesn't get rotated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@mosquito courier]# rpm -q logrotate
Mandrake, for example has another entry in /etc/logrotate.conf:
in the remark they say that because no package owns it (and wtmp, like
already done in fedora) it will show in the main conf file.
Bug #: 372

lastlog should not be rotated, as it will not grow in size (it stores
the timestamps of the last login for each UID, and the max number of
UIDs is 65535, so ,ax size it will be 64K users * 6 bytes each record.
