No output to /var/log/messages or ~syslog


I no longer get any output to /var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog. This seems to have happened after my last kernel compile and reboot. The last message in ~messages is:
Quote:
Jul 15 08:04:36 xxx kernel: klogd 1.4.1, log source = /proc/kmsg started.
and there's been no output to syslog since July 13.
There is a line in /etc/rc.d/rc.syslog that states
Code:
# prevent syslogd/klogd race condition on SMP kernels
. Could this have anything to do with it? I do have SMP enabled but it worked before with it enabled.
It's got to be logging to somewhere, but where.
P.S. And no, I haven't changed the log level.
Thanks

I would try to increment the value in second for sleep at the line you mentionned in /etc/rc.d/rc.syslog like 'sleep 5'

Tried it, no go, seems like klogd won't write anything except warnings to console.

Believe me, I've Googled my head off on this!

If I understand, syslogd must be started before klogd. What happen if you start manually /usr/sbin/syslogd ?
and after that if you
/usr/sbin/klogd -c 3 -x
?

When I do ~# /usr/sbin/syslogd, it starts but no change in logs.
Then ~# /usr/sbin/klogd -c 3 -x I get "already started" and still no change in logs
???
