Question Syslog.conf doesn't exist


I am attempting to setup OpenLDAP on Fedora and I have seen many references to Syslog.conf. I cannot find it or do not have it.

Any help or suggestions?

Usually it is /etc/syslog.conf and it is provided from package sysklogd. It should be installed by default.

Which release of Fedora are you running on? If your system do logging, you may have syslog-ng installed. Fedora project also reports a new system logger which will be released with Fedora 8, called rsyslog. Anyway, can you verify the following?
Code:
rpm -q sysklogd syslog-ng rsyslog
Once you've found which logger is installed, you can find the configuration file by issuing
Code:
rpm -ql <package-name> | grep conf$
where <package-name> is one of the three above, the only ones that come in my mind now.
