[LDM #NZG-657501]: Changing from syslog to rsyslog



Jeff,

The configure(1) script checks the environment before the LDM package is
build. In particular, it checks for the system logging daemon. Consequently,
I recommend rebuilding the package from scratch (starting with a "make
distclean") after you've installed and started the new logging daemon.

In other words, the following sequence:

    1. Stop the LDM;
    2. Switch the system logging daemon;
    3. "make distclean" in the top-level LDM source-directory;
    4. Configure, build, and install the LDM package as usual;
    5. Start the LDM; and
    6. Verify logging.

This should take a few minutes at most and you shouldn't loose any data.

Steve Emmerson
