quick tip (totally unrelated to the syslogd problem, but useful anyway):

instead of the above line, use

    ./etc/init.d/sysklogd restart; ps -axc | grep syslogd\\\|klogd
    ./etc/init.d/sysklogd restart; ps -axc | grep "syslogd\|klogd"


$  ps -axc | grep syslogd\\\|klogd
  266  ?  S      1:07 syslogd 
  268  ?  S      0:00 klogd 

it will run faster because it only has to run one instance each of ps and
grep rather than two each.

The "-c" option to 'ps' tells ps to display just the command and not
the arguments, which eliminates the need for a clumsy "grep -v grep"
pipe to get rid of the grep line in ps' output.
