The above message contained the following:

That's interesting (and non-standard (sigh)).

So, you're running the "syslog-ng" program rather than "syslog".
I guess that's a SUSE thing.

"/sbin/syslog-ng" is the name of the system-logging program rather
than the pathname of the file that contains the process-ID of the
system-logging daemon.  You need to determine how that daemon is started
(from some boot-time script in /etc, I'm guessing) and see if its
process-ID is saved in a file somewhere.

Also, the man(1) page  for syslog-ng might be useful.

Unfortunately, we don't have any experience with SUSE, so we don't know
where to look for this information.  Can we log onto your system as the
LDM user?
