Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 152859
kill -HUP sysklogd-1.4.1-14.legacy.7x problem
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:06 EDT
I have installed this package on my redhat 7.3 server and from then when the
logrotate try to kill -HUP the syslogd, nothing happen, the files in /var/log
are incremented but syslogd continue to fill the same file (for cron, boot.log,
messages, ..). I must restart (/etc/ini.d/syslog restart) to have syslogd change
logging file (that's obvious). Seems that syslogd doesn't handle correctly kill -HUP
Thanks for your help

I have made a reboot of my server and what a surprise, it did not reboot due to
a change in the /dev/null device. This device was now a file. I don't know if
this is related, but the device /dev/null was rename /dev/null.1 as if it was
changed by logrotate...
I never had any problem before installing this sysklod from fedora.legacy
the boot error message was
configuring kernel parameters : dup2 : bad file descriptor
I have restarted with the rescue disk and changed the /dev/null file to a device
Hope I am alone with this problem

I suspect the /dev/null has been accidentally put into a logrotate config file,
where it has been rotated, and after that pretty much everything has ceased to
exist for numerous reasons.
In any case, there is not anything particular in the sources between the RHL73
sysklogd and FL*s release to suggest a culprit there, so closing.
