So you are not using the default logrotate options in Fedora?
The default is 4 saved versions.
Logrotate is run by cron, with the script in /etc/cron.daily and the
config files are /etc/logrotate.conf and in /etc/logrotate.d.

The default options have always worked for me on both workstations and
servers.

Maybe you need to reinstall or make your config files match the defaults
and see if it will work out of the box before you tailor it.
