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, simply execute the following commands from the commandline:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:adiscon/v8-stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install rsyslog
