Thread: No /etc/init.d/syslog in 13.1

  1. #1

    Unhappy No /etc/init.d/syslog in 13.1

    Just installed 13.1 as a VM, but there's no syslog running, and when I check /etc/init.d there's no syslog-script.

    So, what should I do to make it work?

    Do you have it installed? rsyslog is default, unless you use minimal installation.

    13.1 uses systemd, not sysvinit, so you need to look at the startup
    scripts for systemd.

    You'll find /etc/systemd/system/syslog.service does exist.

    Ah, that helped finding it. The only thing not explained is, why didn't it start automatically? Is that a new default?

    No, it's does start automatically here.

    What does "systemctl status syslog.service" say?

    Do you actually have a syslog (rsyslog, syslog-ng) installed?

    Some systems could get systemd's journald instead. A minimal install
    gets it automatically - at least so wrote some one recently. I do not
    know for certain myself.

    Well, yes, systemd's journald is active by default.
    But if rsyslog or syslog-ng is installed and running, journald forwards all messages to that as well.

    I'm not sure whether rsyslog is installed by default on 13.1 though.
    It has NOT been automatically installed in a Factory installation I did recently (10 days ago).

    And if it's not installed, it's obvious that it's not started either.
    But installing it should automatically enable it as well.
