Fedora: What kind of secret does one need to use rsyslog on a systemd system?

+1 vote

What kind of secret voodoo does one need to use rsyslog on a systemd system? Is it even possible?

I have installed it, and I only get kernel boot messages in /var/log/messages.

I find journalctl to be fundamentally braindead, lacking features which we have taken for granted for decades in redhat/rhel/fedora/centos. (Seriously, whats the wisdom of keeping ALL logs around forever?, and in an easily corruptible format).

I found something on the fedora web site which said to just install rsyslog. Which seems to be obsolete or invalid.

I want to start a systemd service (dhcpd) , but only if a link to the internet is present. I don't want the service to start on boot.

systemctl start doesn't work unless the service is enabled.

This works, but it's very kludgy:

 systemctl enable 
 systemctl start 
 systemctl disable 

Any better ideas ?

I'm running Fedora-24(beta)/KDE, and sendmail/email (through KMail) is failing.
When I try to send email I get the warning "Failed to transmit message", and journalctl has the entry
"sendmail.service: PID file /run/ not readable (yet?)
after start: No such file or directory".

I've checked, and is in place:

$ sudo cat /run/ 
/usr/sbin/sendmail -bd -q1h 

Googling for the journalctl entry, I see people have been encountering this problem for years. But I haven't seen any solution offered. Several of the comments suggest that it is a systemd problem.

please help?

How does one get a clean installation of Fedora? "Clean" means that only those packages are installed that are actually needed and only those services are running that are actually needed.

I was wondering if their is a way to have multiple desktop environment on a fedora system without one messing with other. Anytime you have multiple desktop environment on a system they will start writing each others configuration files messing up with themes. Not to mention populated application menus.

Would it be possible to create different users for different desktop environment? Or something like that.
