Re: log file rotation in hamm...

Comment out the following lines in /etc/cron.daily/sysklogd

for LOG in `syslogd-listfiles`
   if [ -f $LOG ]; then
      savelog -g adm -m 640 -u root -c 7 $LOG >/dev/null

(Try running `syslogd-listfiles' - you'll notice that "/var/log/syslog"
is the output)

If you don't want ANY logs rotated on a daily basis, remove
/etc/cron.daily/sysklogd, or add an "exit 0" to the beginning of that
