A few days ago I upgraded (via Fedora 10 DVD) from Fedora 9 to Fedora 10 on my old Athlon XP 2700 i686 w/ NFORCE 2 chipset.
In addition to the familiar horrors (e.g., no X11 screen with fglrx driver) I found that I had no syslogd or klogd running. Looking at the sysklogd service, I found that it was disabled, nor could I enable it from the Service Configuration Panel.
I looked at the sysklogd init in /etc/rc.d/init.d, and it looks ok, but nothing in dmesg or boot.log or anaconda.log as to whether it ran (correctly or not).
I put the commands
into /etc/rc.d/rc.local, and now it comes up with klogd and syslogd running, and I have /var/log/messages, but no file rollover, etc.
Any ideas what's wrong with the sysklogd init?
