Description Tim Waugh 2006-11-10 12:21:20 EST
Description of problem:
/etc/logrotate.d/cups should reload, not restart, cups after rotating the logs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2007-01-12 11:44:37 EST
Hmm, actually even reload isn't safe.  Best not to poke cupsd at all in the
logrotate script.
Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2007-01-22 12:05:24 EST
Fixed in update: cups-1.2.7-1.7.fc6
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2007-03-06 11:50:21 EST
CUPS ought to re-open its log files if logrotate has rotated them, otherwise we
end up continuing to write to error_log.1 etc.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2007-04-10 07:53:35 EDT
Fixed in update: cups-1.2.10-3.fc6.
