User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)
Description of problem:
/etc/logrotate.d/mailman/mailman has a postrotate line of
/var/mailman/bin/mailmanctl reopen >/dev/null 2>&1 || true
But mailmanctl in in /usr/lib/mailman/bin, not in /var/mailman/bin.
Because of this, after rotating the logs, logs still go to the .1
version of the files.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait for logrotate to rotate your mailman log.
2. Notice that bounces are being logged in /var/log/mailman/bounce.1
instead of /var/log/mailman/bounce
Actual Results: Logs go to /var/log/mailman/bounce.1, etc.
Expected Results: Logs should go to /var/log/mailman/bounce, etc.
Good catch, thank you for reporting this Paul, it will be fixed shortly.
fixed in rawhide, fc3 and fc4
