The rocket-fast system for log processing

Build problems with 0.9.6

Bennett Todd has just alerted me of some problems with the new release. In short: the build process seems not to work at all (nor does the install do).

This is actually a documentation issue. The way of compiling rsyslog has changed slightly but importantly. You need to CD into an distribution-specific subdirectory (use linux of in doubt) and then call make. Do NOT do this in the root directory of the rsyslog project. It’s documented here

Looks like I must find some other place to document it… Or find a
different solution (read my blog on why I ended up with this:

Sorry for any hassle. Suggestions are welcome!
