Description Marcela Mašláňová 2011-11-22 14:47:08 UTC
I'm not sure whether the bug is in logrotate or in nocpulse-common. The nocpulse log didn't rotate because of owner of /var/log/nocpulse directory.

error: skipping "/var/log/nocpulse/*log" because parent directory has insecure permissions (It's world writable or writable by group which is not "root") Set "su" directive in config file to tell logrotate which user/group should be used for rotation.
