Rsyslog-4.6.3 .spec

Posted 07-28-2010 at 11:59 PM by unSpawn

Rsyslog is a Syslog replacement. Centos5U5 provides rsyslog-3.22.1-3.el5.i386 but the development branch is at 5.5.6 and the stable release is 4.6.3. Here's a .spec file that will build 4.6.3-1 (this wasn't derived from the 3.22.1 .src.rpm .spec so YMMV(VM) as usual):

%define debug_packages	%{nil}
%define debug_package %{nil}
%define name rsyslog
%define ver 4.6.3
%define rel 1

Name: %{name}
Summary: Enhanced system logging and kernel message trapping daemons
Version: %{ver}
Release: %{rel}
License: GPL
Group: System Environment/Daemons
Source0: %{name}-%{ver}.tar.gz
Source1: init.%{name}
Source2: sysconfig.%{name}
Prereq: /sbin/chkconfig
Provides: %{name}
BuildRoot: %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}

Rsyslog is an enhanced multi-threaded syslogd supporting, among others, MySQL,
syslog/tcp, RFC 3195, permitted sender lists, filtering on any message part,
and fine grain output format control. It is quite compatible to stock sysklogd
and can be used as a drop-in replacement. Its advanced features make it
suitable for enterprise-class, encryption protected syslog relay chains while
at the same time being very easy to setup for the novice user.

%setup -n %{name}-%{ver}

	CFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS -O3 -march=i686"
	export CFLAGS
	export make="make -j3"

%configure --prefix=/usr --sbindir=/sbin --sysconfdir=/etc 2>&1 | egrep "^.*:.*[[:blank:]](no|yes)$" > BUILDOPTIONS.log
make >/dev/null

if [ "$RPM_BUILD_ROOT" = "%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{ver}" ]; then
	rm -rf ${RPM_BUILD_ROOT}
	rm -f %{_tmppath}/%{name}_contents.txt
	mkdir -p %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{ver}/etc/rc.d/init.d
	install -m 0750 ${RPM_SOURCE_DIR}/init.%{name} %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{ver}/etc/rc.d/init.d/%{name}
	mkdir -p %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{ver}/etc/sysconfig
	install -m 0640 ${RPM_SOURCE_DIR}/sysconfig.%{name} %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{ver}/etc/sysconfig/%{name}
find $RPM_BUILD_ROOT -not -type d -printf "%%%attr(%%m,root,root) %%p\n" | sed -e "s|$RPM_BUILD_ROOT||g" -e "s|.*/man/.*$|\0.gz|g" > %{_tmppath}/%{name}_contents.txt
if [ "$RPM_BUILD_ROOT" = "%{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{ver}" ]; then
	rm -rf ${RPM_BUILD_ROOT}
	rm -f %{_tmppath}/%{name}_contents.txt

/sbin/chkconfig --add rsyslog
for n in /var/log/{messages,secure,maillog,spooler}
        [ -f $n ] && continue
        umask 066 && touch $n

if [ $1 = 0 ]; then
        service rsyslog stop >/dev/null 2>&1 ||:
        /sbin/chkconfig --del rsyslog

if [ "$1" -ge "1" ]; then
        service rsyslog condrestart > /dev/null 2>&1 ||:

%files -f %{_tmppath}/%{name}_contents.txt
%doc README ChangeLog doc/* BUILDOPTIONS.log

* Wed Jul 28 2010 %{packager} - %{ver}
- Packaging for %{ver}
* Note %Source2 basically the same as /etc/sysconfig/syslog (add a "-cn" to SYSLOGD_OPTIONS and remove "-m 0") and %Source1 is a standard SysV init script. The version attached has a "test" argument added to check directive validity.
