authorization logging rsyslog.conf in Fedora 20


I'm trying to log authentication messages in Fedora 20, and I though I needed rsyslog.conf - can't find it - how do I do this?
Thanks

Fedora 20 developers in their infinite wisdom deleted rsyslog.

The logs are now done by systemd, and you have to use journalctl to view the logs.

Thats what I thought. Is there a way I can figure out these things on my own? Also, is there a configuration file for this - I looked for systemd-system.conf and found it in a tarball - I want to redirect logging to another computer - I know how to do it, I just don't know where. Thanks.

I don't think remote logging works with systemd yet.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...on_with_syslog

seems to indicate it is possible to use rsyslog to recieve the messages though. Note, there is a bit of additional delay added, but it should be close enough to a live log.

https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipe...ly/185585.html

Also indicates that systemd will not do remote logging, and will not implement it.
