Description Jesse Keating 2007-10-06 10:42:22 EDT
Now that yum logs when it installs/removes things to the system log, actions
done on behalf of upd-instroot are winding up in the system log.  I'm not sure
if this should be "fixed" in upd-instroot or if yum should avoid logging if
--installroot  is used.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-10-09 11:46:32 EDT
There's nothing we can do about it in upd-instroot as it stands.  Seth -- does
it make sense to just allow disabling the syslogging?  Or should we do something
more clever
Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2007-10-09 19:33:17 EDT
I'd say leave the logging on and just add the option of listing the installroot
in  the log output if it is NOT '/'

I think Icon submitted a patch for something like that a long time back and it
just got passed over. so something like:
Oct  5 10:57:33 cutter yum: Installed: zsh - 4.3.4-3.fc8.i386 - /my/chroot/

that way they're tracked and easy to distinguish.

After talking about this on yum-devel the rough consensus was 'god this sucks
there's no nice answer' and we shelved it for a while. I think the easiest thing
might be just to turn off syslog/filelog in certain events.

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

What about adding "--disable-logging" option?
Comment 10 James Antill 2009-03-06 14:28:57 EST
 Ok this is now fixed upstream. You can specify a syslog_device as part of YumBase().preconf ... if that doesn't exist, then syslogging isn't setup.
