Install rsyslog on Ubuntu

The Adiscon Ubuntu Repository has been setup to provide the latest rsyslog versions on Ubuntu including 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.

An overview of the currently available packages can be found here: Launchpad PPA

To install rsyslog on Ubuntu execute this from a terminal window:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:adiscon/v8-devel
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rsyslog 

Packages for debug symbols:

Open file: /etc/apt/sources.list.d/adiscon-ubuntu-v8-devel-xenial.list
Edit first line to: deb xenial main/debug
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rsyslog-dbgsym

If you prefer to run the scheduled stable build use:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:adiscon/v8-stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rsyslog

Note: the scheduled stable build is cut every 6 weeks from the daily stable build.
