Description Glen Gray 2010-06-23 11:28:37 UTC
Created attachment 426238 [details]
update the syslog paths

Description of problem:
When generating an initrd with syslog support, it fails due to a path change in rsyslog.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
005-3


How reproducible:
Always


Steps to Reproduce:
1./sbin/dracut -f -a "network syslog debug nfs" --omit "lvm mdraid crypt dm dmraid dasd iscsi" /boot/netboot-initrd
  
Actual results:
E: Failed to install /usr/lib/rsyslog/lmnet.so


Expected results:


Additional info:
Then /usr/share/dracut/modules.d/98syslog/install file has incorrect paths for the rsyslog modules

better search for these files dynamically, instead of hardcoding the paths, which differ for distributions and architectures.

Comment 3 Glen Gray 2010-08-30 09:51:06 UTC
It seems that whatever updates where applied to the dracut system in general didn't make it to this module. There's also warning about using the "dwarn" function, I think it was renamed to dwarning.
