Firestarter is working ok but for some reason it cannot open the system log.
I Have found what amendments need to be made to get this to work but simply cannot get access to the file
Your command sudo /etc/ryslog.conf is meaningless. You need a proper command to come after "sudo". If you wanted to use an editor to edit the file then you would type something like
sudo nano /etc/rsyslog.conf
where you can substitute your favourite editor if you don't like nano. You will then be prompted for a password and you supply your own (not the root password).
