Re: Can't get iptables LOG
the reason i have *.* log to that file is for debugging purposes i don't intend to leave it like that
i believe kern.warn should be sufficient to send to that log
is there a way to make it so restarting syslogd w/o restarting klogd doesn't break it?
because syslogd gets restarted every so often by cron

messages to the console.

Maybe something like kernel.* or kernel.info seems more appropriate...

Well, it's a while I don't use sysklogd anymore, but I'd say that you
must restart klogd after syslogd. Failing to do so leads to a "broken
pipe" situation, so that the kernel messages can't be addressed to their
