Comment 2 Ales Kozumplik 2011-10-10 11:14:02 EDT
I can confirm this, though this is not a bug in analog. Apparently the rsyslog format of forwarded messages has changed between the two versions and what is forwarded from F16 rsyslogd (the one running in your guest) is not correctly parsed by the receiving F15 rsyslogd (the one where analog is running). You should be able to confirm this e.g. by looking at debug_unknown_source.log which contains all the messages where we failed to recognize the tag.

Reassigning to rsyslogd which maintainer might or might not be able to help you.

The easiest fix for you is in any case upgrading your host rsyslogd to the same version the tested guest is running.
Comment 3 Ales Kozumplik 2011-10-11 09:09:02 EDT
We clarified this with theinric and the error is not because of a new rsyslog version but rather due to changed environment in F16 --- something we can fix in the image generation.

Fixed by e61f3b23d47903b30ac0ce591a200dc5edc4f979. This will be part of the first f17 compose.


Will it be OK to have this in F17 only?

It would be better if you can correct it in F16 Final, since the new environment in F16, I have to update the test scripts accordingly, so I need a working media to test. Thanks.
