Ok this is a quicky... OpenSlug (as of 2.7beta) has got the syslogd.conf set to log to "buffer". The "buffer" can be accessed using the "logread" command.
If you enstead wish to have a "real" logfile change your /etc/syslog.conf to look something like this:
root@jabba:~# cat /etc/syslog.conf DESTINATION="file" # log destinations (buffer file remote) MARKINT=20 # intervall between --mark-- entries LOGFILE=/tmp/messages # where to log (file) REMOTE=loghost:514 # where to log (syslog remote) REDUCE=no # reduce-size logging #ROTATESIZE=0 # rotate log if grown beyond X [kByte] (incompatible with busybox) #ROTATEGENS=3 # keep X generations of rotated logs (incompatible with busybox) BUFFERSIZE=64 # size of circular buffer [kByte] FOREGROUND=no # run in foreground (don't use!)
I have it going to the /tmp directory so it ends up on a ramdisk and doesn't write to my flash stick. You can put it anywhere you like. There are security reasons not to have it readable by mere mortals.
