Hi again,

Found the answer, and thanks to Rob McCauley for getting me there.

The man page for syslog.conf does not _directly_ say what to put in
the facility.level entry for covering multiple levels of one facility.

In other Unixes, a simple star (*) will work.

Rob pointed out, that to do as in the example I provided the correct
entry is:

kern.debug /var/log/kernel

which will send all messages of debug priority or higher to

Thanks again folks. Appreciate it.
