disabling some logrotations


I have installed a package (iptraf) which writes its logfiles to
/var/log/iptraf . Now logrotate automatically rotates the iptraffic
logfiles. However, I have several scripts running which takes care of the
logs so I want logrotate to leave them alone.

While searching on this, it seemed to be enough to make a dummy file in
/etc/logrotate.d/iptraf.disabled . Unfortunately, logrotate still rotates
the logfiles.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,

  NT is the OS of the future. The main engine is the 16-bit Subsystem
  (also called MS-DOS Subsystem). Above that, there is the windoze 95/98
  16-bit Subsystem. Anyone can see that 16+16=32, so windoze NT is a
  *real* 32-bit system.
