acpid and logging



Hello,
since version 1.0.6, acpid does not use separate file for logging. It uses
openlog() and vsyslog() instead of own implementation of logging. So everything
go to /var/log/messages. But it could be dangerous. According to this bug
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=294391, it could lead to unreadable
/var/log/messages.

So there are two options:
1. Get back to old style logging (but upstream does not want to)
2. In /etc/rsyslog.conf append a filter for acpid, so rsyslog will be logging
messages form acpid in separate file.

Question is, what is better solution :-)

Thanks

Zdenek
