After upgrading from 7.1 to 7.2, getting messages on startup.

:: Starting syslog
/etc/sv/syslog-ng/run: line 9: /usr/sbin/syslog-ng: No such file or directory
/etc/sv/syslog-ng/run: line 9: exec: /usr/sbin/syslog-ng: cannot execute: No such file or directory

Well the message is correct a /usr/sbin/syslog-ng does not exist. There are other locations for syslog-ng but most are directories.

  • Category set to Installation/Upgrade
  • Status changed from New to Resolved
  • Target version set to 7.3

syslog-ng was replaced with rsyslog.
The update procedure should have taken care of stuff for you, but looks like it didn't for everybody.
This can be fixed in 2 different ways
option 1:
- pacman -Sy rsyslog
pacman -Sy runit-scripts
remove_service.sh syslog-ng
add_service.sh rsyslog

option 2:
pacman -S rsyslog
pacman -Sy runit-scripts
sudo systemconfig.py -m hostype
