i want to make more bigger logs

Yeah i talk like a 2 year old cause in this forum pretending to be as knowledegable as a two
year old would be a stretch.

There must be a way to include more information in the logd of slackware 10. maybe i should
check the man pages, huh, logd .. anyway, since im here

i want to know when a process -tries- to write a file where its not allowed to
eg, in roots directory, or in its parent directory, or where its just making a mistake
and wasting processor space

i also want to make logs of any errors generated by perl, cgi, bash, tcl, or any of the other
scripting environments that are running, im off to check some man pages, if you dont mind,
please help.

This isn't possible with a lot of work. The "log permissions failures" probably isn't so bad, but you'll probably want to do something like install SELinux and use some of its functionality for logging potential security violations. GRSecurity might work too, but I don't know much about it. As for the scripting environments, you probably would need to modify the source of the language interpreter to log to syslog on failure. If you're lucky, perhaps someone has already done this and it's just an option to ./configure, but honestly I don't at all see why anyone would want to do this.
