Description borgia 1998-12-18 18:16:41 EST
logrotate.conf doesn't handle lastlog, even tough it's
supposed to, and does not compress logs by default
[version 2.6-3]
Comment 1 David Lawrence 1998-12-23 10:56:59 EST
This report reduces to a policy question, (why doesn't logrotate
rotate lastlog) and a product improvement suggestion, (why doesn't
logrotate compress back level logs).
Comment 2 borgia 1998-12-26 18:02:59 EST
No, it is not a policy question! Please read the comments in your own

From /etc/logrotate.conf as shipped in 5.2:
# no packages own lastlog or wtmp -- we'll rotate them here
/var/log/wtmp {
    rotate 1

# system-specific logs may be configured here

Doh: the script says it should handle lastlog, but doesn't...
