Hi All,

I recently upgraded a machine (used for evaluating graylog) from CentOS 7 to CentOS 8 and it turns out that nxlog was removed in the process.

Now I can't find it in the CentOS 8 dnf packages.

Is nxlog available for Centos 8? and if so, who can I install it?

Many thanks,

    Hi Celine,

    Since NXLog CE is developed by the community there are no dates set. An alternative could be to build a package from source as stated in one of the comments above.

    Kind regards, Miša

    Thanks @Misaziv

    Do you have a tutorial or procedure to install from source ?

    I've prepreq deprecated output :
