Re: syslog daemon is dying

Look in /etc/syslog.conf, and make sure all of the log files mentioned in
that file, and their _directories_, actually exist. I hear stories of this
happening when removing some package, because the log file and its directory
disappears, and syslogd gets into a loop trying to open the log file.
