[rsyslogd] Error 1

Postby prozit » Sun Jul 30, 2017 3:47 pm


I am trying to centralize network device loggings to a central rsyslog server.
However some of these devices still use rfc-3195, which can only be supported by rsyslog when built from source (as far as I could find).

It has taken me a lot of time already to try and foresee all necessary dependencies to get this rfc included in the rsyslog build.
Now I have been able to make the ./configure finish correctly and have now proceded to the next step, being the make process.

As I can see from the (make) debug log, the prerequisites for rsyslogd have been finished and the system wants to remake the target 'rsyslogd'(see log below).
However, when doing that, it stops with an error.

Does somebody have an idea what I might be doing wrong and how I can complete the compilation without errors? I am stuck for the moment.
Snippet of the make debug logs:

Code: Select all
      No need to remake target `../compat/'.
     Finished prerequisites of target file `rsyslogd'.
    Must remake target `rsyslogd'.
Invoking recipe from Makefile:739 to update target `rsyslogd'.

I have read some articles stating the zlib path is unknown to the system, but even when adding the path of zlib to the ./configure command, it doesn't seem to be working...
I am using the following configuration parameters:

Code: Select all
./configure LIBLOGGING_CFLAGS=/usr/lib LIBLOGGING_LIBS=/usr/lib LIBLOGGING_STDLOG_CFLAGS=/usr/lib LIBLOGGING_STDLOG_LIBS=/usr/lib ZLIB_LIBS=/usr/local/lib ZLIB_CFLAGS=/usr/local/lib \
        --disable-uuid \
        --enable-mysql \
        --enable-snmp \
        --enable-elasticsearch \
        --enable-gnutls \
        --enable-libgcrypt \
        --enable-mail \
        --enable-mmanon \
        --enable-mmfields \
        --enable-mmnormalize \
        --enable-mmrm1stspace \
        --enable-mmutf8fix \
        --enable-pmaixforwardedfrom \
        --enable-pmciscoios \
        --enable-relp \
        --enable-rfc3195 \
        --enable-imfile \
        --enable-imptcp \
        --enable-impstats \
        --enable-omstdout \
        --enable-omruleset \
        --enable-omkafka \

Many thanks,
Kind regards,
Francis Claessens.

Just noticed I placed this topic in the wrong category.
Can this post be moved to the category "Installation"?
