Description Cott Lang 2003-07-19 12:15:43 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030701

Description of problem:
Every day logwatch mails me a week or so's worth of logs. I'm using the default
logwatch.conf, and it has Range = yesterday.  Maybe I'm wrong, but it would
appear that this should make logwatch only mail yesterday's entries out every
day, but I quite clearly get everything in the log directory. :)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Allow log entries to pile up
2. Let logwatch run
3. Read your email

Actual Results:  One day's worth of entries mailed

Expected Results:  Everything is mailed

Comment 2 Cott Lang 2003-08-21 08:54:27 EDT
Upon further investigation, bug id 102746 is correct, I believe this is limited
to up2date logs. There have been so many lately. :)
Comment 3 Damian Menscher 2003-08-21 13:45:41 EDT
In case you didn't already figure it out, it's because several of the conf files
in /etc/log.d/conf/logfiles are missing the line:


up2date.conf isn't the only one affected....
Comment 4 Matthew Prentice 2003-08-21 15:06:33 EDT
Thank you.  I put that entry in the file and re-ran the report successfully.
Comment 5 Cott Lang 2003-08-24 11:33:37 EDT
Thanks ...

Redhat - is there any hope for a fix on this from you guys?  I really hate to go
edit a couple dozen machines... but I guess I can.
Comment 6 Gilles Detillieux 2003-10-30 11:32:31 EST
Actually, the real problem is the missing scripts in the
/etc/log.d/scripts/logfiles/{autorpm,cron,up2date} directories.

See bug 80496 for the solution.  I guess 99438 should be marked as duplicate.
