Description Jan ONDREJ 2015-06-24 07:56:32 UTC
Description of problem:
Logrotate can't rotate syslog files properly. They are renamed, bug rsyslog is not restarted. Looks like problem is in /etc/logrotate.d/syslog file, which is trying to HUP kill /var/run/ instead of  /var/run/

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
weekly (always on rotation)

Additional info:
Consider changing /etc/logrotate/syslog to /etc/logrotate/rsyslog too, but may be only in Fedora 23. For Fedora 22 this could cause problems if somebody modified this file.
