klogd wont start on VPS


I'm trying to get klogd to work on my VPS but I'm having some issues with it. I have searched around but haven't been able to fix it...

syslog configuration

Code:
#!/bin/bash
#
# syslog        Starts syslogd/klogd.
#
#
# chkconfig: 2345 12 88
# description: Syslog is the facility by which many daemons use to log \
# messages to various system log files.  It is a good idea to always \
# run syslog.
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides: $syslog
### END INIT INFO

# Source function library.
. /etc/init.d/functions

RETVAL=0

start() {
	[ -x /sbin/syslogd ] || exit 5
	[ -x /sbin/klogd ] || exit 5

	# Source config
	if [ -f /etc/sysconfig/syslog ] ; then
		. /etc/sysconfig/syslog
	else
		SYSLOGD_OPTIONS="-m 0"
		KLOGD_OPTIONS="-2"
	fi

	if [ -z "$SYSLOG_UMASK" ] ; then
	      SYSLOG_UMASK=077;
	fi
	umask $SYSLOG_UMASK
 	echo -n $"Starting system logger: "
	daemon syslogd $SYSLOGD_OPTIONS
	RETVAL=$?
	echo
	echo -n $"Starting kernel logger: "
	#passed klogd skipped daemon klogd $KLOGD_OPTIONS
	echo
	[ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && touch /var/lock/subsys/syslog
	return $RETVAL
}	
stop() {
	echo -n $"Shutting down kernel logger: "
	#passed klogd skipped killproc klogd
	echo
	echo -n $"Shutting down system logger: "
	killproc syslogd
	RETVAL=$?
	echo
	[ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && rm -f /var/lock/subsys/syslog
	return $RETVAL
}
rhstatus() {
	status syslogd
	status klogd
}
restart() {
	stop
	start
}	
reload()  {
    RETVAL=1
    syslog=`cat /var/run/syslogd.pid 2>/dev/null`
    echo -n "Reloading syslogd..."
    if [ -n "${syslog}" ] && [ -e /proc/"${syslog}" ]; then
	kill -HUP "$syslog";
	RETVAL=$?
    fi
    if [ $RETVAL -ne 0 ]; then
	failure
    else
	success
    fi
    echo
    RETVAL=1
    echo -n "Reloading klogd..."
    klog=`cat /var/run/klogd.pid 2>/dev/null`
    if [ -n "${klog}" ] && [ -e /proc/"${klog}" ]; then
	kill -USR2 "$klog";
        RETVAL=$?
    fi
    if [ $RETVAL -ne 0 ]; then
	failure
    else
	success
    fi
    echo    
    return $RETVAL
}
case "$1" in
  start)
  	start
	;;
  stop)
  	stop
	;;
  status)
  	rhstatus
	;;
  restart)
  	restart
	;;
  reload)
	reload
	;;
  condrestart)
  	[ -f /var/lock/subsys/syslog ] && restart || :
	;;
  *)
	echo $"Usage: $0 {start|stop|status|restart|condrestart}"
	exit 2
esac

exit $?
This is what I get when I try restarting syslog

Code:
root@orbit [~]# service syslog restart
Shutting down kernel logger:
Shutting down system logger:                               [  OK  ]
Starting system logger:                                    [  OK  ]
Starting kernel logger:
Can anyone advise as to how I can fix this?

Operating System is CentOS 5.5.

Thanks.

hi,

try to replace
Code:
#passed klogd skipped daemon klogd $KLOGD_OPTIONS
line with
Code:
daemon klogd $KLOGD_OPTIONS
in /etc/init.d/syslog
