Description Russell Coker 2006-09-04 03:21:31 EDT
If you have $logdir=/XXX in your logwatch.conf then it will instead try to
access /xxx.  Currently the only way to access logs in a directory that contains
capital letters seems to be creating a symlink with only lowercase letters.  EG
"ln -s /XXX /xxx".
