After installing sysklogd and cronie I have some log rotate script in my cron.weekly (called syslog)
Do I still need to install logrotate? Sorry I can't really type the script itself here right now, it's quite lengthy.

Just google for logrotate and you will see what it does.

If you need it or not, depends on how you manage your logs. I do not use logrotate, as I have channeled all logs through syslog-ng to a mysql database.
