The following modules are not found after installing: afsmtp afstreams pacctformat redis systemd-journal tfgeoip

I got the list of modules from here: and the list of installed modules with this command: syslog-ng --version

I'm specifically interested in getting the riemann module hooked in.

Steps to reproduce:

$ yaourt syslog-ng --noconfirm
# syslog-ng --version

Additional info:

Output of "syslog-ng --version"

I don't know if it's included in Arch, but riemann-c-client is needed to get riemann support in syslog-ng compiled:
BTW: syslog-ng 3.6.4 is also available with a number of additional bug fixes.

Hi there, thanks for the feedback. I'm new to packaging for Arch and compiling in general. Even if I were to have riemann-c-client installed, the syslog-ng package you provide would still need to be re-compiled, right? So, to get things working, I need to:

1) provide a riemann-c-client package
2) create a syslog-ng-riemann package that depends on this package

or just a syslog-ng-riemann package that also builds riemann-c-client package. Does this sound practical?

Sorry, I can't help with the Arch specific parts, I'm from syslog-ng upstream. You should rather contact the Arch syslog-ng package maintainer.

Yes, we would need to provide riemann-c-client in [extra]. But I won't be doing that soon.

Update because the request was reassigned to me (new syslog-ng maintainer): I'm also not interested in maintaining a riemann package, but if someone steps up and provides on in our repositories I won't mind enabling support in syslog-ng.
