[debian-mysql] Bug#544013: mysql-server-5.1: logrotate script cannot handle stopped mysqld

Package: mysql-server-5.1
Version: 5.1.37-1
Severity: normal


I'm one of those users who are forced to install mysql-server as a
dependency, but really do not want to run it, especially not as a system
service. I therefore stopped mysql and removed all links in /etc/rc*.d/.
However the logrotate script seems to be unable to handle this case:

error: error running shared postrotate script for '/var/log/mysql.log /var/log/mysql/mysql.log /var/log/mysql/mysql-slow.log '
run-parts: /etc/cron.daily/logrotate exited with return code 1

I hope that you get the package properly split for akonadi soon, because
at the moment kdepim is a real pain.
