I compiled/install/configured syslog-ng as a replacement for syslogd.
Then I copied /etc/rc.d/syslogd to /etc/rc.d/syslog-ng.
Finally, replaced "name, rcvar, command and required_files".
The trouble is, nothing starts (with the script, by-hand is OK :)
I was wondering what the "nice" way to handle syslog replacement was.
That is what is the nice way to :
- not start syslogd (syslogd=NO in /etc/rc.conf)
- start syslog-ng (syslogng=YES in /etc/rc.conf)
- use of PROVIDE, REQUIRES, BEFORE...
should /etc/rc.d/syslog-ng containt PROVIDE=syslogd ?
should it contain PROVIDE=syslogng ? then what for other scripts that
will depends on syslogd ?
