Description mikej 2014-09-18 20:25:22 UTC
Setting syslogd_flags="" or syslogd_flags="<value>" in /etc/rc.conf is ignored on boot and instead you get the default flag value "-s" as defined in /etc/defaults/rc.conf. Other init scripts that I tested behave as expected and honor their _flags in /etc/rc.conf

Killing syslogd process "killall -9 syslogd" and restarting with "/etc/rc.d/syslogd start" set flags as expected

I also noted that there is no DEBUG output in /var/messages for syslogd on boot when rc_debug="YES" is defined in /etc/rc.conf

I am unsure when this was resolved, but I cannot reproduce this behavior.

Thank you for the report.
