    Question:


    When the system log gets full, the OS zip's up the log and creates a new log with the permissions -rw-r-----

    I monitor the system log on the desktop, but require permissions -rw-r--r--

    Now I know how to change this manually, but there must be an automatic script that zips up the system log and creates a new one with appropriate permissions when it gets full. Looking at the file sizes of the old logs, not sure what full is.....:)

    Just wondering where this script was so I could change the file permissions automatically..

    Thanks

    I posted this after I couldn't find an answer on Google. As soon as I posted, I re-worded the question and found the answer...well there you go should have been a bit more thorough
