1.130.1. RHBA-2010:0980: bug fix update

Updated rsyslog packages that fix various bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The rsyslog packages provide an enhanced, multi-threaded syslog daemon that supports MySQL, syslog/TCP, RFC 3195, permitted sender lists, filtering on any message part, and fine grain output format control. Rsyslog is compatible with stock sysklogd, and can be used as a drop-in replacement. It is simple to set up, with advanced features suitable for enterprise-class, encryption-protected syslog relay chains.
This update fixes the following bugs:
* Although the previous release of the rsyslog packages replaced rklogd, a daemon that provided kernel logging, with a loadable module, it did not enable this functionality in the configuration. Consequent to this, rsyslog did not log the kernel messages at all. With this update, the /etc/rsyslog.conf configuration file has been corrected to include the "$ModLoad imklog" directive, and the kernel messages are now logged as expected. ( BZ#661147, BZ#661149)
* The previous rsyslog release introduced a new format of the message timestamps. However, certain utilities such as logwatch may have been unable to parse this new format properly. To prevent this, the "$ActionFileDefaultTemplate RSYSLOG_TraditionalFileFormat" directive has been added to the /etc/rsyslog.conf configuration file to ensure that the old format is used by default. ( BZ#661148)
All users of rsyslog are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues. Note that if the /etc/rsyslog.conf configuration file contains local modifications, it is necessary to add these configuration directives manually.
