The Adiscon Ubuntu Repository has been setup to provide support for the latest rsyslog versions on Ubuntu including support for necessary third party packages. Please note that the Ubuntu Repository is open for testing at the moment, and contains the latest RSyslog version. Currently supported Ubuntu Versions:
- Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty)
- Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander)
- Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise)
Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal) (Not Updated anymore)
Currently supported RSyslog Branches:
v7-devel (Not Updated anymore)
The new packages are based in the original and latest Ubuntu 12 rsyslog packages, so in most cases an simple sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade will be enough to update rsyslog. Please note that these packages are currently experimental. Use at your own risk.
