Solving ldm syslog/rsyslog issues requires simply replacing "syslog"
with "rsyslog" references in the configure script then building ldm from
source. Exchanging syslog with rsyslog system-wide will give you many more
issues, of course.
In my copy of the configure script the references look like this:
elif test -f /var/run/rsyslogd.pid; then
cat >>confdefs.h <<\_ACEOF
#define SYSLOG_PIDFILE "/var/run/rsyslogd.pid"
As I recall there are two places at about the 5800 ff line area.
