Comment 10 for bug 407862

This bug was fixed in the package rsyslog - 4.2.0-2ubuntu1

rsyslog (4.2.0-2ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  [ Michael Terry ]
  * Merge from debian unstable (LP: #413023), remaining changes:
    - Run as rsyslog:rsyslog
    - Allow reading /proc/kmsg when non-root
    - Cleanly upgrade from sysklogd
  * debian/patches/deroot.patch: Don't allow using the klogctl function to
    read klog messages. Rather, allow /proc/kmsg or nothing, since we have
    special support for reading /proc/kmsg while unprivileged.

  [ Neil Wilson ]
  * debian/rsyslog.init: Set blocksize for dd (LP: #407862) and restore
    reload init argument to original lightweight reload
