alkisg: hey, is it normal that my /var/log/auth.log isn't working on my ltsp client (I run ssh on there so it's nice to be able to see it), do you perhaps happen to know where to enable it again?
09:43
<alkisg>
highvoltage: new ltsp?
09:44

alkisg: ltsp19

<alkisg>
highvoltage: Debian keeps duplicate logs, once in systemd's journal and once in /var/log, so to save RAM I disable /var/log completely, and we need to use journalctl, journalctl -f, journalctl -u unit etc
09:44
Hopefully they'll drop the duplicate logging soon :)
09:45
<highvoltage>
journalctl -u
09:45
(oops :) )
09:45
<alkisg>
/var/log may also become full after days of uptime, while I limit journalctl to 1 MB of logs
09:46
<highvoltage>
where can I enable it again? this particular machine has enough ram and can be restarted now and again
09:47
<alkisg>
I think I'm doing it by completely masking rsyslog, so you'd need a PRE_INIT_SED command to patch the code there
09:47
If there's need for rsyslog, we should find a better way...
09:47
ltsp/client/init/56-mask-services.sh: apt-daily-upgrade.service rsyslog.service

<highvoltage>
aaah, thanks alkisg!
09:48
alkisg: *nod*
09:48
<alkisg>
np :)

highvoltage: if you can find the logs in /var/log, and for some reason they do not appear in journalctl, I'd like to know... it would be a reason to find a way to allow rsyslog
10:14
As far as I tested, the /var/log stuff was just a forwarding from systemd, which was the primary log source
10:22
<highvoltage>
yeah some software we use on this machine is hardcoded to look in /var/log, so I guess that could be updated but probably won't affect many other people either
