Summary0015277: rsyslog-5.8.10-12.0.1.el6.x86_64 stops accepting logs from various subsystems
Descriptionrsyslog-5.8.10-12.0.1.el6.x86_64 stops accepting logs from various subsystems. As there are:
- Postfix
- System itself
- any other

Trying to send a log using /dev/log with logger leads to:
# LANG=CC logger -u /dev/log -t mail TEST
connect: Protocol wrong type for socket.

Postfix in debug mode shows some same error, as do all others wanting to connect to /dev/log.
Steps To ReproduceInstall CentOS, upgrade to the latest versions.

Logging stops after rsyslogd restarted.
Additional InformationDowngrading rsyslogd helps, as switching to an other logging daemon.
