Howto to enable logging in Knoppix 3.8?


I've installed Knoppix 3.8 to hard disk. It seems that nothing is being logged. All log files are empty.

How do I enable logging? I searched for hours and can't find the answer.

You need to install the sysklog package.

Thanks for the suggestion, /bin/bash. But, no joy there. Sysklogd is installed. I studied the man pages, and compared that information to sysklog.conf, and everything seems OK. I opened a term window, and issued a couple of commands based on the examples in the man pages; still no joy.

Something else is going on, and I'm completely stumped to discover what that might be.

Possible permission problem in the log directory or to /var/log?

Permissions the same as in my SuSE installation. But thanks for the offer of help. I appreciate the thought.

Is syslogd running?
pidof syslogd
That should give you the PID of syslogd.
