Description Enrico Scholz 2002-12-17 23:06:12 EST
Description of problem:

logrotate creates error-messages like:

| error: amd:4 error verifying olddir path /var/log//var/log/.old: No such file
or directory

'olddir' is set by /etc/logrotate.d/00options:
| olddir /var/log/.old                                                         

/etc/logrotate.d/apm does not contain an 'olddir' specification

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


How reproducible:

Patch against logrotate-3.6.6 fixing olddir-behavior

The attached patch fixes the following issues:
* the check if olddir is an absolute or relative path was broken
* the check if olddir and logfile are on the same device happened too early
