The Adiscon Ubuntu Repository has been setup to provide the latest rsyslog versions on Ubuntu including support for necessary third party packages.
We support those Ubuntu versions that have not yet reached end of life as of Ubuntu policy. For some Ubuntu versions beyond end of life, we may have packages in the PPA, but these may disappear at any instant and are not supported at all.
Currently supported rsyslog branches:
- v8-devel (daily builds)
- v7-stable (outdated, not recommended to be used anymore)
The new packages are based in the original Ubuntu 12 rsyslog packages.
To install a current rsyslog version on Ubuntu:
- Open a Terminal
- Enter the following command:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:adiscon/v8-stable
- Then update your apt cache:
sudo apt-get update
- Finally install the new rsyslog version:
sudo apt-get install rsyslog
We highly appreciate any feedback or bug reports.
The following short video shows how the steps are actually done:
