ulogd and Fedora

Post by Basher52 » Tue Feb 03, 2004 6:21 pm

ive tried the old version that i used for the old RH9 and that worked fine,
but it cant be compiled in Fedora without big syntax errors
so...i DLd another version that was supposed to work under Fedora...
i installed the RPM, this was OK.
but when trying to start the daemon, it just take all CPU there is or it dont even start

these are the version i tried...:
ulogd-1.00.tar.gz (from RH9)
ulogd-1.00-1.i586.rpm

has any had this problem?
or do you got another nice logging app?

I just created an RPM of 1.02 for ya. You can find it in my RPMS section:

http://voidmain.is-a-geek.net/files/RPMS/

or if you have my apt repository in your sources.list you can just:

# apt-get update; apt-get install ulogd ulogd-mysql

I just listed myself as the "packager". That is, I am the one who created the RPM. I did take the spec file from an older RPM file on the ulogd site because there was no RPM for 1.02 on the site. I then downloaded the 1.02 tar.bz2 file and put it in the SOURCES directory and started hacking the spec file to match the new version and change the packager name to me.

I also added a few enhancements to the spec file that weren't in the old one. For incstance, when I first built the RPM and installed it, it put the service script in /etc/rc.d/init.d but did not make it executable and did not do a "chkconfig --add ulogd". So I made the RPM do those things at install time, as well as shut down the service and do a "chkconfig --del ulogd" prior to removing the RPM when you remove it with the "-e".

Well, not really. About 10 minutes of work, including trial and error time. :)
