People do not seem to want to help me, and google is worthless with this problem, so I guess I have to get money involved to get this question answered (which is kinda sad).
Anyway, I have tried -Cron, -cron, -Crond, and -pam, to no avail. Those messages still show up in logwatch.
I am willing to pay $3, via paypal, if someone can answer this question for me. You don't even have to do anything but reply to this thread. The first person to reply to this thread and answer this question correctly for me, and it makes those annoying messages dissapear forever from my logwatch email reports, will get $3 sent via paypal only.
Yeah I have been through all of those myself. Didn't work.
Question though, if I added the "quiet" there, and I change the date range process for today just for testing (it was originally at yesterday), should it take those messages out? or will those messages stop being logged the moment i changed it, which means the messages that were already logged will still remain there. I'm under the impression that logwatch will just process the messages on the fly and remove the ones that aren't needed when the report is created, but I could be mistaking.
Either way, I added "quiet" to the end of that line, and had logwatch process the report for today (instead of yesterday) and those messages are still in there.
Here is the exact steps I just took:
edited /etc/pam.d/system-auth, added quiet to that line
exited pico and saved the file.
edited logwatch.conf to comment out the "-pam" in the Service = line.
changed to /etc/cron.daily/ and ran 00-logwatch
opened up logwatch email, still filled with those messages.
