problem of savelog
I found yesterday that mails were not delivered since about
6:30 in the morning so I investigated a problem and found
that /var/log/exim/paniclog said /var/log/exim/mainlog had
a wrong owner/permission;
2005-02-16 06:33:49 1D1AKL-0005JC-00 Cannot open main log file "/var/log/exim/m\
ainlog": Permission denied: euid=8 egid=8
In fact "ls -l" looked like
-rw------- 1 root adm 0 2005-02-16 06:33 mainlog
so I changed its owner/permission then I got mails.
However I found today that the situation was worse than yesterday;
not only wrong owner/permission of mainlog
-rw------- 1 root adm 0 2005-02-17 06:33 mainlog
but also wrong owner/permission of paniclog(?)
-rw------- 1 root adm 0 2005-02-17 06:33 paniclog
so paniclog told me nothing today.
I suspect that savelog in /etc/cron.daily/exim didn't work
correctly but I couldn't find any bug in BTS.
My machine is Alpha and system is of unstable.
ii debianutils 2.12.0 Miscellaneous utilities specific to Debian
ii exim 3.36-13 An MTA (Mail Transport Agent)
Is there anyone who encountered the same problem or is this
Alpha specific or even specific to my machine?
Thanks in advance.
