FC3 syslogd fails to start
Having been running RH 9 for some time I decided to upgrade to Fedora 3 via a DVD supplied with Linux User & Developer (UK mag).
The installation went reasonably (apart from my wife seeing the machine was on and I wasn't there so she swirched it off!), but when it booted an error came up when it tried to start syslogd. The error is:
Starting system logger: syslogd: error while loading shared libraries: libc.so.6: cannot open shared object file: Permission denied
I presume that this is /usr/lib/libc.so.6 which is linked to /usr/lib/libc.so, which has permissions 644.
I tried upgrading both libc and sysklogd (klogd works perfectly), which I acheived via up2date.
uname -a gives:
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.9-1.667 #1 Tue Nov 2 14:41:25 EST 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
and the upgraded packe#ages are:
