Ubuntu official repository has a very old version of rsyslog 5.8.11
Debian testing has 7.4.3
Is there a reason why a newer version cannot be synced from Debian?

Hi Jaan. I also wonder why, for example, a new version of a ArpON utility has an old 2.0 version on Ubuntu (all variant), when most others Linux distributions uses brand new release - 2.7 version. Yes, I know that there are many Wiki pages, which explains a lot of questiuons, but ArpON, really, is very important and usefull utility. From security point of view...

Sorry for a unneeded text about it, but it worries me a little. If it is about your question, maybe take a look here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Ubuntu/ForDebianDevelopers#How_does_Ubuntu_cooperate_with_Debian.3F - website with many interesting questions.

Oh, by the way: I hope, that I understand your problem/question, because I have had all night long work to do and I'm so tired right now. If I wrote something stupid, bad or not related to your question, then I apologize.

Best regards.

Argh! I'm sorry for a double posts messages. I think, that you should, look for a some Documentation/Wiki or simple ask on Ubuntu Devel mailing list etc.

I suggest you report a bug. There may be a PPA.

Ubuntu is a very old operating system. Most of the people they used it and also they gave the good review. But in today's date, there is a faster event is running. So many people they depend on windows. But I have a suggestion for you, I have so many tactics for you to use Ubuntu. For it, may have to interest to do anything in Ubuntu. For knowing then I suggest a site from there you know everything about it. https://printerssupport.org/xerox-printer-support/

How is it an "old operating system"? Where did you hear that? Its very wrong.

Can you help with this problem?
