The smf manifest is provided by cswclassutils. I'll transfer this bug to cswlcassutils.

Ok, I have to do some tests to reproduce the problem. In the meantime, I guess you can just install the package into each zone manually, I hope it's not too many.

Still haven't had time to test but wondering if it's just cswclassutils not being present in the (sparse) zones?

I really can't get any further without more info. I will have to assume that the install was done from a sparse zone so CSWcswclassutils (which contains files in /usr) failed. The fix is to install CSWcswclassutils from the global zone.

I have added info about the sparse zone issue on the wiki.

It is fixable, I've created [^] with a proposal.

Why is that a fix and for what? Please explain what's the problem first? Is it a problem with syslog_ng or cswclassutils?

And who are you? automaciej from IRC, wahwah from Sourceforge?
2009-05-29 13:54

Yes, it's the same person: automaciej from irc == wahwah from sourceforge == maciej from the mailing list

In short: The original problem was that syslog_ng didn't get started in non-global zones. Changeset 5096 fixes that.

Longer explanation: I don't think that the SMF manifest was provided by cswclassutils. There was an XML file in the 'files' folder. Changeset 5096 ports syslog_ng to mgar v2 and switches SMF handling to cswclassutils. As a side note, I don't think this bug belongs to cswclassutils or common, it belongs to syslog_ng.

Ok, thanks for the clarification. :-)

According to your link Ihsan already used the SMF support through cswclassutils:

SPKG_CLASSES = none cswinitsmf

That class autogenerates a manifest and that's what gets imported so even if he somehow packaged another manifest I doubt very much it was used, it may have been there as some contrib stuff.

But as I have tried to mention before, cswclassutils contains files in /usr so if you're running a sparse zone and tries to install, in this case, syslog_ng from it, the dependency installation of cswclassutils will fail since /usr is read-only. The fix is to have cswclassutils installed from the global zone so the dependency is fulfilled beforehand.

I see, you thought that I installed the package in a sparse zone -- that wasn't the case.

Say, you have machine foo with zones foo-zone1 and foo-zone2. You install syslog_ng in the global zone of foo. When you do that, foo-zone1 and foo-zone2 will inherit syslog_ng. What I expect to happen is to have syslog_ng up and running on foo-zone1 and foo-zone2 as well as in the global zone. This wasn't happening, hence this bug.

Ok, so your changes only to syslog_ng has made it work for you? Then I agree that this is a syslog_ng bug and not a cswclassutils one. We mistakenly transferred the bug to cswclassutils. Is it ok to transfer it back to syslog_ng (Ihsan)?
2009-05-29 15:45

Yes, changes to syslog_ng only fixed the issue.

This issue is fixed. syslog-ng installs and runs fine in non-global zones.
