Description Leif Nixon 2002-01-14 09:28:52 EST
There seems to be a bug in the readState() function in logrotate.c;
an if statement checks the value of an uninitialized FILE* variable f, leading
to an "error stat()ing state file" error messsage and exit(1) if f happens
to be NULL. See attached patch.
