The lastlog.tmpfiles, part of the shadow package says to create /var/log/lastlog if it does not exist with the line:

"f /var/log/lastlog"

Instead of say:

"f /var/log/lastlog 0644 root root"

Now the last three parameters are optional according to the systemd tmpfiles.d spec. I only looked into this because I use initscripts (on one of my machines) which is less flexible about tmpfiles. The lastlog file was introduced after initscripts began using systemd tools so this went unnoticed until I switched to initscripts-fork.

If you don't want to change this, I'll just hack the fork or put up with the warning message. Thanks!
