           Summary: syslog-ng.service and systemd with journal support
           Product: syslog-ng
           Version: 3.3.x
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: unspecified
         Component: packaging
        AssignedTo: folti at balabit.hu
        ReportedBy: jpo at di.uminho.pt
Type of the Report: ---
   Estimated Hours: 0.0


The current syslog-ng.service file shipped in the contrib directory (contrib/systemd/syslog-ng.service)
will break under recent systemd versions (with journal support) as systemd-kmsg-syslogd.service has
been discontinued.

Offending line:
ExecStartPre=/bin/systemctl stop systemd-kmsg-syslogd.service

Possible solutions:
1) remove the ExecStartPre line
2) prefix the command with a dash to avoid error checking

Affected syslog-ng branches:
branches >= 3.3

Fedora >= 17 current status:
We have eliminated the offending line from the Fedora' syslog-ng.service

More information:
Bug 833551 - don't refer to systemd-kmsg-syslogd.service anymore
