openembedded-core-contrib-a2db9320d97d12d87524ff16a329f9c38a8da33f.tar.bz2 restore /etc/logrotate.d/wtmp
During the test logrotate.LogrotateTest.test_1_logrotate_setup, there is below logic: # mkdir $HOME/logrotate_dir # sed -i "s#wtmp {#wtmp {\n olddir $HOME/logrotate_dir#" /etc/logrotate.d/wtmp After all logrotate.LogrotateTest finished, only cleanup $HOME/logrotate_dir as below, but don't restore the config file /etc/logrotate.d/wtmp. [snip] def tearDownClass(cls):'rm -rf $HOME/logrotate_dir') [snip] That's to say, there is one additional line added to /etc/logrotate.d/wtmp and will make the logrotate service start failed when run systemd.SystemdBasicTests.test_systemd_failed Take an example as below when run test as root: # cat /etc/logrotate.d/wtmp # no packages own wtmp -- we'll rotate it here /var/log/wtmp { olddir /root/logrotate_dir missingok monthly create 0664 root utmp minsize 1M rotate 1 } # ls /root/logrotate_dir ls: cannot access '/root/logrotate_dir': No such file or directory # systemctl start logrotate Job for logrotate.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
