/var/log/cups/*_log {

Comment 1 Nivag 2007-01-27 18:52:05 UTC
Hmm... weird!

Looking more closely: the error refers to 'notifyempty' but the files actually
appear to contain 'notifempty'!!!

Comment 2 Scott McBrien 2007-01-28 11:46:34 UTC
version of affected logrotate RPM:
logrotate.i386 3.7.4-9.fc6

Comment 3 Peter Vrabec 2007-01-28 12:44:06 UTC
What locale do you use?

could you run 
#logrotate -v /etc/logrotate.conf
and see in which config file is the problem.

Comment 5 Tom Horsley 2007-01-29 12:06:14 UTC
On my system the error comes from /etc/logrotate.d/sa-update which is owned
by spamassassin-3.1.7-4.fc5 (and the errors started the day after rpm -i
says this was installed by a yum update).

Comment 6 Peter Vrabec 2007-01-29 13:09:30 UTC
thnx. Tom,
I'm reassigning this bug to Warren Togami.

# grep notifyempty /etc/logrotate.d/*
/etc/logrotate.d/sa-update:    notifyempty

Warren rename notifyempty to notifempty , please.
