Bug#1189: syslogd message is alarming-looking
At boot-time, I see:
If syslogd exits with this message
syslogd: syslog/udp: unknown service, suspending inet
it is normal--it just means that network support for syslog is disabled.
If you want network support, remove the comment from the `syslog' entry
in the file `/etc/services'.
Instead of this rather confusing message the message `syslogd:
syslog/udp: unknown service, suspending inet' should be changed to be
more informative. How about
syslogd: network logging disabled (syslog/udp service not known),
see syslogd(8) for details of whether and how to enable it.
with an appropriate paragraph in the manpage ?
