rsyslog v7 for ubuntu 12.04 precise

I wanted to take a look at the latest rsyslog stuff but the current ubuntu releases only have v5 package.

So I created an updated ppa for this.

This ppa also has updated packages for libee, libestr, librelp that are needed for the latest rsyslog.

Launchpad link for the ppa.



To use it you can also just use the following commands,

# sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tmortensen/rsyslogv7
# sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install rsyslog
I referenced the debian package to make these.
Many thanks go out to the original debian maintainer for rsyslog.  He did most of the work needed to get these created.
