Description David Alden 2002-12-19 13:49:33 UTC
Description of problem:
"olddir" doesn't allow relative pathnames -- even though it (looks like it)
is supposed to.  I commented out the code in config.c that checks for
the existence of the directory, and everything else worked just fine.  I need
this so I can do something like:

/var/syslog/*/* {
  olddir old

and have logrotate place the old logfiles in their respective old directories.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.6.5 and 3.6.6 (didn't check older versions)

How reproducible:
Create a config file with "olddir relative/path".

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:
