Description Douglas E. Warner 2008-01-23 23:28:48 UTC
We should create a separate package that syslog packages can require for 
providing syslog log rotation scripts so the various syslog packages don't 
conflict.  An initial case is that rsyslog and syslog-ng both provide 
an /etc/logrotate.d/syslog file, and having separate files will result in 

Comment 1 Douglas E. Warner 2008-01-23 23:30:46 UTC
See bug#400661 about syslog-ng and rsyslog conflicting.

Comment 2 Peter Vrabec 2008-01-25 12:13:58 UTC
OK, what if we change /etc/logrotate.d/syslog, so it HUP both rsyslog and 
syslog-ng? Of course there will be separate pid files and rsyslog, syslog-ng 
will provide same /etc/logrotate.d/syslog.

We have similar situation in RHEL and we solve it this way.

Comment 3 Douglas E. Warner 2008-01-25 13:38:11 UTC
Re: comment#2, that would be fine with me as long as RPM doesn't care about 
the conflicting file.  Should this file be maintained upstream somewhere, or 
should we just do our best to keep it in sync between rsyslog and syslog-ng?

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 23:25:17 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 18:20:54 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
