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.
