Is the operating-system SuSE?  If so, then you might have a problem with 

Here is a predefined answer that explains the problem and contains a solution.  
let me know if it's not applicable.

Regarding use of syslog-ng on SuSE Linux:

We believe that SuSE users are not locked into running syslog-ng.  We are not 
in anything SuSE, but there are RPMs for syslogd on the SuSE
FTP site.  For example for SuSE v9.3:


Unfortunately, we do not have enough experience with syslog-ng or SuSE
to be able to help get LDM logging working using syslog-ng.  We
recommend, therefore, that sites strongly consider installing and using
syslogd.  If/when you do, you can configure it using the standard directions
available in the Unidata LDM webpages.
