Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1647
mgetty-sendfax does not install log file
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:49 EDT
mgetty-sendfax in Redhat 5.9 does not install
/var/log/sendfax.log but it *does* install
/etc/logrotate.d/sendfax, which means the system tries to
rotate a non-existent log file. This results in the
errors occured while rotating /var/log/sendfax.log
stat of /var/log/sendfax.log failed: No such file or
No harm is done, but the error gets mailed to root every 24
hours, which can get annoying after a few days.
The obvious workaround is to create the proper log file
manually. But the mgetty-sendfax rpm should do that.
log file handling is cleaned up in 1.1.14-7 and later.
