On my Slackware 10.2 system I have logrotate set to place old
versions of debug, maillog, messages, and syslog into /var/log/old/
as I believe is default fo Slackware. I like having the old
versions there, to minimize clutter.
On the other hand, old log files for apache, news, and ntp are kept
in the same directory as the current file, as each of these services
has its own directory for log files (e.g., /var/log/apache/).
I would like to have logwatch read both rotated and current logs,
but am not sure how to tell it about the location of the rotated
standard logs in /var/log/old/. Any tips would be much appreciated.
