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 http://ppa.launchpad.net/adiscon/v8-devel/ubuntu 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.
