syslog-ng & distributions

syslog-ng 1.6.x and 2.0.x versions had lived quite long. A lot of distributions used these versions and never upgraded to the newer ones.

This has changed recently, Peter Czanik was busy to help maintainers get to the latest versions.

Already available in the latest release:
  • openSUSE
  • FreeBSD ports
  • Mandriva
  • Gentoo portage
  • OpenBSD ports

In development branches:
  • Debian
  • Ubuntu
  • Fedora
These all carry 3.1.1, which is quite recent (and a successful release too). There are some fixes accumulated in the git tree though, so I hope to get 3.1.2 out of the door soon.

Solaris 9 and 10 please?

Well, we don't provide Solaris binaries ourselves, but there's one in Sunfreeware, or you can compile your own.

There is a lot of syslog-ng users running on Solaris, so if you have a compilation issue, simply ask on the mailing list. There are helpful fellows there :)
