[LDM #PAK-897870]: LDM 6.11.6 Install: /etc/syslog.conf



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.
