/var/log/cups/*_log {

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root   68 Jan 23 06:33 sa-update
/var/log/sa-update.log {

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

Expected results:
no error

Hmm... weird!

Looking more closely: the error refers to 'notifyempty' but the files actually
appear to contain 'notifempty'!!!

version of affected logrotate RPM:
logrotate.i386 3.7.4-9.fc6
Comment 3 Peter Vrabec 2007-01-28 07:44:06 EST
What locale do you use?

could you run 
#logrotate -v /etc/logrotate.conf
and see in which config file is the problem.

Comment 5 Tom Horsley 2007-01-29 07:06:14 EST
On my system the error comes from /etc/logrotate.d/sa-update which is owned
by spamassassin-3.1.7-4.fc5 (and the errors started the day after rpm -i
says this was installed by a yum update).
Comment 6 Peter Vrabec 2007-01-29 08:09:30 EST
thnx. Tom,
I'm reassigning this bug to Warren Togami.

# grep notifyempty /etc/logrotate.d/*
/etc/logrotate.d/sa-update:    notifyempty

Warren rename notifyempty to notifempty , please.
