Re: FC5 - Logwatch reports stopped

Usually I receive a Logwatch report via e-mail everyday, timestamped at 0402 LOCAL TIME.

Today is the second day in a row I did not receive a report at all?

I tried running logwatch as root with --print but after a minute or so, there is nothing displayed and the command prompt is displayed again?

What would cause logwatch to stop reporting things? Where are the log files it uses to build the daily report?

The report showed things such as which updates were installed, current disk space, log in attempts (successful and failed)

It's not as if none of those things happened.

How does Logwatch get started each day? crontab -l doesn't show anything for root?

$ ls -l /etc/cron.daily/0logwatch
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Apr 5 04:58 /etc/cron.daily/0logwatch -> /usr/share/logwatch/scripts/logwatch.pl


For me...
$ ls -l /etc/cron.daily/0logwatch
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 Apr 4 12:07 /etc/cron.daily/0logwatch -> /usr/share/logwatch/scripts/logwatch.pl

We have different logwatch programs... or is the file date when it was installed?

$ rpm -q logwatch
logwatch-7.2.1-1.fc5

This is what yum info shows as being the current version

The last logwatch report I have begins with:
