logrotate issue with noexec /tmp

Postby sleddog » 2006/12/29 20:34:01

There is a RedHat 4 bug for logrotate-3.7.1-5 here:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/sh ... ?id=156594

To summarize: logrotate cannot run postrotate scripts on systems where the /tmp directory is mounted noexec.

RedHat released a new logrotate package (logrotate-3.7.1-6) on 2006-10-11 to fix this issue:


But to do date, this update is not included in CentOS 4. I've checked a few mirrors, all have the older logrotate-3.7.1-5.

logrotate issue with noexec /tmp

That would be because you looked in the wrong place :-)

It was released on 20 Oct into the CentOS fasttrack repository


(The upstream provider HAS NOT released that into production RHEL yet ... it is instead in their fastrack channel).

for info on what the upstream fastrack channel is ... and to see info about the CentOS fasttrack channel ... look here:
