Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 424171
logwatch doesn't recognize dovecot starting up message with version number
Last modified: 2008-01-04 11:05:11 EST
Description of problem:
Logwatch 7.3.6 handles dovecot 1.0 log entries for the most part, but fails to
properly recognize the "starting up" message, which now includes a version number.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
7.3.6-11.fc8 (Fedora 8)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up and start dovecot service on Fedora 8 or rawhide.
2. Login to service using IMAP or POP.
3. logwatch --range All --service dovecot --detail 10 --print
"dovecot: Dovecot v1.0.7 starting up: 1 Times(s)" appears under **Unmatched
"Dovecot restarted 1 time(s)."
Patch below fixes problem. Patch also posted to Bug #424031 for RHEL 5.
