Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Rsyslog has its modules in the /usr/lib{,64} directory tree. This can cause problems if the /usr directory resides on a different filesystem and the filesystem is unavailable during the startup of the daemon. The updated package has relocated the module directory to /lib{,64}, which is expected to be always accessible.

Description of problem:
Rsyslog has its modules in the /usr/lib directory tree. They should be in /lib so that diskless installs or nfs and iscsi /usr mounts work.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ql rsyslog | grep usr

Comment 6 RHEL Program Management 2010-08-09 18:54:38 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
