comment logrotate does not compress /var/log/messages
I tried running logrotate manually like you suggested, and it tells me it's compressing the logs, but I don't find any compressed logs anywhere. See my question above for details.

comment logrotate does not compress /var/log/messages
Thanks for the reply. I'm running Gentoo Linux. My crontabs are not doing any management of /var/log/messages. Please see the new info in my question for details.

Thanks for the clarification. I thought maybe the Ubuntu /etc/sudoers might have similar commented-out config options.

comment Install coverage-3.0.1 to gentoo
That's true, but I find many Python packages which are useful but don't have an ebuild maintainer. That's why I end up using a mixture of both portage and setuptools for Python packages. I haven't shot myself in the foot yet! :P
