Question syslog and firestarter - log messages to another file than messages


i installed a rh 9.0 box and putted firestarter on it. firestarter logs a lot of activities, quite interesting but: the messages log with other kernel-messages gets absolutely inreadable. so, as a newbie i tried hard to change the syslog-facility (which wasn't that easy...), and it seems to work.

here is mit syslog.conf, PLEASE CAN ANYONE CHECK, THAT I STILL GET LOGGED EVERYTHING IN MY MESSAGES-FILE EXCEPT FIREWALL-LOG-ENTRIES??

Thanks a lot. BTW. if it really helps, i think, this change can help a lot of others too....


[root@link etc]# more syslog.conf
# Log all kernel messages to the console.
# Logging much else clutters up the screen.
#kern.* /dev/console

# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
# Don't log private authentication messages!
*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none;kern.!warning;*.err /var/log/messages

# IPTABLES - Messages, a try
kern.warning /var/log/firewall

# The authpriv file has restricted access.
authpriv.* /var/log/secure

# Log all the mail messages in one place.
mail.* /var/log/maillog


# Log cron stuff
cron.* /var/log/cron

# Everybody gets emergency messages
*.emerg *

# Save news errors of level crit and higher in a special file.
uucp,news.crit /var/log/spooler

# Save boot messages also to boot.log
local7.* /var/log/boot.log
