system logger questions

I recently changed loggers from sysklogd to syslog-ng and I'm having a
booger of an error. AFAIK I did an 'rc-update del sysklog' before
emerging/rc-updating for syslog-ng, so I'm cornfuzzled as to why, upon
booting and after emerging any package I get the following message:

 * Caching service dependencies...
 *  Service 'sysklogd' already provide 'logger'!;
 *  Not adding service 'syslog-ng' ...


Ironically, rc-status shows that syslog-ng is in and running happily,
and a quick ps -A verifies the same thing. However, this little twerp
is keeping vcron from starting because it is looking for
/usr/sbin/syslogd and /usr/sbin/klogd.

I've tried unmerge/emerging and the same thing happens. Any hints or
advice would be muchos appreciated.

Can you give me an 'ls /etc/runlevels/default'?

ultrablue / # ls /etc/runlevels/default
apache2 local net.eth0 netmount sshd syslog-ng vcron


Also, I just caught this off of the boot as well.

INIT: Entering runlevel: 3
 ...
 * Starting syslog-ng...               [ ok ]
 * Starting syslogd, klogd...
start-stop-daemon: stat /usr/sbin/syslogd: No such file or directory
start-stop-daemon: stat /usr/sbin/klogd: No such file or directory
 * Failed to start syslogd, klogd            [ !! ]

 * ERROR:  Problem starting needed services.
 *         "vcron" was not started.
 ...


It clearly shows syslog-ng starting up fine, but it still tries to go on
and start up the no longer existing syslogd and klogd. I know this is
such a simple fix too...just not sure where to look.

Have you tried just running 'depscan.sh' manually?

Did you type "rc-update del sysklog" or "rc-update del sysklog
default"?  You have to specify where you are deleting from.
Alternatively, you can delete the symlink from
"/etc/runlevels/default".

Well, er.. no. If you don't specify a runlevel, it will be removed
from all runlevels.

'rc-update' without arguments gives a brief description. The note
near the top is interesting re: your comment about deleting symlinks
manually.

Hi,

I had the same problem yesterday.

Try to remove /etc/init.d/sysklogd and /etc/conf.d/sysklogd and try again.
It worked for me.

I think these files should be deleted when unmerging sysklogd but I'm not
really sure cause I'm new to gentoo.

Greetz,

RSp
