Alan, This is the first time I've heard of "/etc/syslogs.conf". What operating-system is this? What is the output of the command "ps -ef | grep syslog"? I recommend the creation of the symbolic link "/etc/syslog.conf" to "/etc/syslogs.conf". I don't know of any working LDM installation that wasn't installed by root. The package requires superuser privileges to work correctly (using the system logging daemon, binding to port 388, etc.). The LDM is used by NASA, NOAA, USGS, and the US military (Army, Navy, and Air Force). Have your systems administrators contact me if they have a problem with it. > I do not have the root password and the ldm account is a non-password > account.
