[leafnode-list] logrotate, sysklogd, news logs (again).
I upgraded a computer from Ubuntu Feisty to Gutsy recently and then
ran into the "not logging through syslog" problem described in a
previous thread. 
So I edited /etc/logrotate.d/leafnode and changed this (the last
kill -1 $(cat /var/run/syslogd.pid)
That didn't work, so I added the same four lines to the entries for
news.crit, news.err and news.notice in the same file. I believe the
kill -1 is SIGHUPping the daemon because I see
syslogd 1.4.1#21ubuntu3: restart.
entries in the syslog at the time of the log rotation.
I believe my cron.daily is carrying out logrotate before the sysklogd
script (which rotates syslog and restarts the daemon again).
Any further debugging suggestions?
"fetchnews and logrotate?"
