Replacing sysklogd with syslog-ng


Hi all!

I have the following configuration of servers:
OS version: RedHat Enterprise Linux 5

And i have the sysklogd working on it.

Now I need to replace that standard sysklogd with syslog-ng.

when i trying to install it from manually built rpm, i get the following message:

Code:
# rpm -ihv syslog-ng-2.0.9-4.i386.rpm 
Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
        file /etc/logrotate.d/syslog from install of syslog-ng-2.0.9-4.i386 conflicts with file from package sysklogd-1.4.1-44.el5.i386
When i deleting the sysklogd package, i must remove also about 150 other packages due to dependencies.

How can i replace standard sysklogd with the syslog-ng?

When you remove syslogd you can force the removal, nodeps or something I believe off hand. syslog-ng might be in rpmforce have a look there. Also consider rsyslog which is the next gen of syslog even replacing syslog-ng.
