I'm helping to upgrade syslog-ng to current version in major Linux
distributions. I would like to ask, if you could update syslog-ng to
version 3.1. I'm working on the openSUSE version of syslog-ng 3.1 (
), and it is also being upgraded in Debian (
http://packages.qa.debian.org/s/syslog-ng.html ) and Gentoo (
http://gentoo.linuxhowtos.org/portage/app-admin/syslog-ng ) and Mandriva
( http://sophie.zarb.org/viewrpm/b8182fa1eee109cc655a020a2cb62f5f ).
For a complete list of changes, please see:
Major changes from the packaging point of view:
- addition of new utilities:
- apparmor (or SElinux in case of Fedora) needs some extra permissions:
Version 3.0 also added SSL support among many other changes, but that
can't be enabled on openSUSE (configure arg: --disable-ssl): syslog-ng
is in /sbin, openssl libs are in /usr/lib, linking from /usr is not
allowed in /, and SSL is not available statically for security reasons.
As far as I can see (I have a Fedora 13 snapshot installed in vmware),
Fedora has the same problem.
Please let me know, if you need any additional help/information to get
syslog-ng updated for Fedora.
