Description wp0002 1999-09-06 22:00:55 UTC
The syslog.conf configuration file included in sysklogd
causes syslog to save boot messages in /var/log/boot.log.
Unfortunately, this file is not rotated like other logs and
can grow quite big.  The sysklogd rpm should probably
install a file such as /etc/logrotate.d with the following
contents:

/var/log/boot.log { }

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-08 18:22:59 UTC
Fixed in sysklogd-1.3.31-10, which will be in next Raw Hide release.
