logrotate fails to rotate any logs when file with space encountered
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
When the file /var/lib/logrotate.status contains a file name with a space
logrotate quits with an error.
/var/log/samba/log.virtual pc 2000-7-14
The filename was actually "/var/log/samba/log.virtual pc". The only reason
up for me is that someone on a mac named their virtual pc "virtual pc" and
samba picked it up with it's logs.
Fixed in logrotate 3.4 in rawhide.
