1.73.1. RHBA-2010:0827: bug fix update
The logrotate utility simplifies the administration of multiple log files, allowing the automatic rotation, compression, removal, and mailing of log files.
* Previously, using the "compressoptions" directive in the configuration file, /etc/logrotate.conf, caused logrotate to crash. With this update, the relevant part of the source code has been updated to use the popt library, and logrotate now works as expected. ( BZ#646762
All users of logrotate are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves this issue.
