Installation via Devo repository

  1. Add the Devo repository to the system repository list. This only needs to be performed once.

    wget http://repository.logtrust.net/PublicKey
    sudo apt-key add PublicKey
    sudo gpg --import PublicKey
  2. Create the following file:

    /etc/apt/sources.list.d/logtrust.list file

    deb http://repository.logtrust.net/ precise main
  3. Update the APT local database and install the logtrust-system and logtrust-monitor Devo packages:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install logtrust-system logtrust-monitor
    

Update via Devo repository

To upgrade to the latest version of any Devo packages, follow the same procedure as for a standard distribution package. The following is an example for DEB-based distributions:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install logtrust-system
$ sudo logtrust-system-configure (If not running automatically)

Installation via .deb packages

Download the logtrust-system and logtrust-monitor packages found here: 

Install the packages using the following commands:

  • logtrust-system

    sudo dpkg -i logtrust-system_0.1-1_all.deb
    
  • logtrust-monitor

    sudo dpkg -i logtrust-monitor_0.1-1_all.deb

Modifying the configuration of a Devo package

After the packages have been installed, you can access the configuration options by running one of the following commands:

  • logtrust-system

    sudo logtrust-system-configure
    

    Or

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure logtrust-system
  • logtrust-monitor

    sudo logtrust-monitor-configure
    

    Or:

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure logtrust-monitor

Uninstalling a Devo package

Run one of these two commands:

  • logtrust-system

    apt-get purge logtrust-system
    

    Or

    dpkg --purge logtrust-system
  • logtrust-monitor

    apt-get purge logtrust-monitor
    

    Or:

    dpkg --purge logtrust-monitor

Tested versions

Common errors in Debian 5.x

Debian Lenny comes with an old version of rsyslog that does not support any of the functions that use Devo packages. See below how to update rsyslog using Debian's backports repository.

  1. Open the file and ensure that the file /etc/apt/sources.list contains the following: 

    deb http://archive.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://archive.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free
    deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-security lenny/updates main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://archive.debian.org/debian-security lenny/updates main contrib non-free
    deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main contrib non-free
    deb-src http://archive.debian.org/debian-volatile lenny/volatile main contrib non-free
    deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-backports lenny-backports main
  2.  Run the following commands to update rsyslog using the backports repository:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install debian-archive-keyring
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get purge rsyslog
    sudo apt-get -t lenny-backports install "rsyslog"
