Comment 1 Daniel Walsh 2005-04-25 18:39:42 UTC
Why is logwatch writing files to /?

This looks like a configuration problem.

Comment 2 Ivan Gyurdiev 2005-04-25 19:11:48 UTC
No idea...changing component to logwatch.


Comment 3 Ivan Gyurdiev 2005-05-06 15:21:11 UTC
What's the status of this bug?
Why does logwatch write to / ?

Comment 4 Jiri Ryska 2005-05-17 15:24:06 UTC
I have two questions:
1) what says "rpm -q logwatch"?
2) what says "grep TmpDir /etc/log.d/conf/logwatch.conf"?

Comment 5 Ivan Gyurdiev 2005-05-17 18:08:00 UTC
logwatch-6.0.1-1
TmpDir = /tmp


Comment 6 Jiri Ryska 2005-05-19 14:28:43 UTC
I think it should be fixed in logwatch-6.0.1-2. If you want to try my fixes they
are temporarily available at
http://people.redhat.com/jryska/logwatch-6.0.1-2.testing.noarch.rpm
http://people.redhat.com/jryska/logwatch-6.0.1-2.testing.src.rpm

Comment 7 bjorn l. 2005-05-21 00:04:27 UTC
This (and many other bugs) are fixed in the current upstream 6.1 release.
Is it possible to roll that in?


Comment 8 Ivan Gyurdiev 2005-06-02 01:16:59 UTC
Haven't seen this in a while...could it be fixed?

This is logwatch-6.0.1-2. Sorry that I didn't test it when you
asked me to - lots of stuff to take care of, and I forget.

Closing for now, may reopen if I see it again.
