I have much the same problem. I'm running a stock Debian 1.1.13 system (with
the new procps and modules from 1.1.14, because the kernel-source package
is corrupted). I *can* get both daemons running eventually but I have to
./etc/init.d/sysklogd restart; ps -ax | grep syslogd; ps -ax | grep klogd
(as root, of course) repeatedly until both of them come up. They seem
to take turns dying off until finally they stay alive. I cannot for
the life of me figure this out. I have tried reinstalling the sysklogd
package. Someone help, please!
