SUMMARY Problem with syslog on Solaris2.5

Date: Mon Apr 29 1996 - 14:56:39 CDT

I am sorry about this but the problem would have been solved if I had
RTFM more carefully. The problem is caused by space characters in the
line. The only allowd character should be TABs. The answer of Casper Dik
says it all.

There are several errors here.

First of all, the spaces you used should have been TABS.

Secondly, it's always an error to list the same facility twice.
A log entry of "local0.debug" wil cause everything of severity
debug *and above* to be logged.

The proper line is (again, TABS, not spaces)

local0.debug /usr/spool/mqueue/POPlog

And you also must create logfile beforehand.

Many thanks to
