User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [de] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.9-31 i686)
Description of problem:
pretends that it does not support reload. In fact reload is implemented as a
restart in /etc/init.d/syslog.
That is bad. Please implement reload as sending SIG_HUP to the syslogd. See man
syslogd for details.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: The same as doing /etc/init.d/syslog restart
Very sorry for the long delay in responding to this bug.
Somehow this bug slipped through the cracks - I just discovered it
(I've recently taken over maintenance of the syslogd package).
I agree - the next version of syslogd (1.4.1-31+) will have an
initscript that supports the "reload" command by sending a SIGHUP
Red Hat Linux and Red Hat Powertools are currently no longer supported by Red
Hat, Inc. In an effort to clean up bugzilla, we are closing all bugs in MODIFIED
state for these products.
However, we do want to make sure that nothing important slips through the
cracks. If, in fact, these issues are not resolved in a current Fedora Core
Release (such as Fedora Core 5), please open a new issues stating so. Thanks.
