    I seem to have one massive Log File /var/log/svxlink going back to day one when I first powered up the system. Is there a way of setting things so I can have a new Log File every week or make Open Repeater override the file every week.

    Running Open Repeater 2.1.2

    Many Thank Louis 2W0LGG

    Sounds like what you need is to enable/configure log rotate. I haven’t had the need to do this myself. Don’t think my log gets that massive.

    I’m not where I can provide details or do any testing. Just search for log rotate on Raspbian Buster. I think I remember seeing a recent change where the it’s controls by systemd now instead of a cron job.
