Using Webmin 1.680 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5.

When I try to use the syslog module it assumes it is using syslog. But Red Hat EL 6 is based on Fedora 12 and uses rsyslog.

I've noticed that the syslog has different configuration based on the version.
syslog/config-redhat-linux-*-15.0 => syslog
syslog/config-redhat-linux-16.0-23.0 => rsyslog

Red Hat EL6 gets detected as:
os_type=redhat-linux
os_version=14
real_os_type=Redhat Enterprise Linux
real_os_version=6

So it uses the first configuration file, which is syslog based.

I'll be happy to help resolve this issue. But is there some documentation on what os_version=14 means?

    Thanks - this will be fixed in the next Webmin release.
