I installed rsyslog 5.8.5 on a system that already had 5.4.x on it. A symbolic link was used previously to point to the rsyslog install directory. After installing the new version, I adjusted to link to point to the new version. Here is what the file system looks like:
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 1024 Sep 14 2010 etc
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 1024 Sep 14 2010 relp
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 26 Sep 8 13:27 rsyslog -> /opt/rsyslog/rsyslog-5.8.5
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 1024 Sep 14 2010 rsyslog-5.4.0
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 1024 Sep 8 13:24 rsyslog-5.8.5
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 1024 Sep 14 2010 spool
When I try to start rsyslog with the start script that was used previously (/etc/init.d/rsyslog), it hangs. After a reboot, rsyslog simply does not start.
So, I am missing something :) Is there a way to debug this? Is there a local log that rsyslog creates with info that will help me determine what is wrong?
Any insight is greatly appreciated. If I did not explain it well, please let me know that also.
