Re: Need help making syslog-ng, rsyslog, and sysklogd not conflict

I've been sitting on an update to syslog-ng for quite awhile now because I haven't been able to make syslog-ng compatible with simultaneous installations of rsyslog or sysklogd (RHEL).

The root of the problem is that currently you can't install syslog-ng along side of either of the other two syslog providers since both packages installs their own logrotate files that rotate the same log files resulting in double log rotation.

I've tried updating my syslog-ng package to include the logrotate file of each of the other packages, but this still conflicts on RHEL-based boxes and when sysklogd gets an update, syslog-ng gets silently removed (RPM does it without reporting that it happened or yum saying it will happen).

Any ideas how I can make these packages installable at the same time?


Should these packages even be installable at the same time?

Kind regards,
