rsyslog-8.15.0 - problem with rsyslog.service on CentOS7

Postby ezv » Mon Jan 18, 2016 3:28 pm


Just installed rsyslog-8.15.0-1.el7.x86_64.rpm from ... /$basearch on up-to-date CentOS7 and "service rsyslog start" starts rsyslog, but produces error messages about failed dependency:
[root@czlab-kat-server yum.repos.d]# service rsyslog start
Starting rsyslog (via systemctl): A dependency job for rsyslog.service failed. See 'journalctl -xe' for details.
[root@czlab-kat-server yum.repos.d]#

Examination of rsyslog.service file as it ships with RHEL7 and Fedora23 reveals that the following two lined need to be commented out in (or dropped from) rsyslog.service file:
With this modification, there are no error messages during rsyslog startup/shutdown.

Please is there any chance to have this small modification included in future versions of rsyslog8 for RHEL/CentOS?
