Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 55824
samba-2.0.10-0.521 logrotate script uses unrecognized "missingok" and "sharedscripts"
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:38:04 EDT
Description of Problem:
samba-2.0.10-0.521 logrotate script uses unrecognized "missingok"
and "sharedscripts", which results in an error message being
mailed daily to the administrator
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Daily on a 5.2 machine (logrotate is too old and no upgrade
was ever issued).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. upgrade to samba-2.0.10-0.521
Daily error message
No error message
This is a recurring problem with 5.2 updates, see for example
bug #4744; easily fixed by the local admin, just comment out the
offending stuff, but the use of "sharedscripts" suggests that
whoever put together the logrotate script might expect it to do
something which on a RedHat 5.2 would not be done. Maybe an
upgrade to logrotate, like the RPM 4.x upgrade, would fix
such annoyances once for all.
RHL 5.2 is no longer supported (the support time is 3 years from release for
end-of-series releases), newer releases don't have this problem.
