Description Mark Johnston freebsd_committer 2021-12-01 17:57:29 UTC
Installing rsyslog, I get this message:

It's recommended to copy syslog.conf(5) to                                                                                                                                                                    
/usr/local/etc/rsyslog.conf and edit it there. Otherwise add                                                                                                                                                  


But if I do that and start rsyslogd I get:

rsyslogd: BSD-style blocks are no longer supported in rsyslog, see https://www.rsyslog.com/g/BSD for details and a solution (Block '!-devd') [v8.2110.0 try https://www.rsyslog.com/e/2304 ]

    sysutils/rsyslog8: update pkg-message and add sample config file

    Upstream changes mean that the advice formerly given in pkg-message to
    modify the default /etc/syslog.conf file as the basis of a new
    ${PREFIX}/etc/rsyslog.conf are now less useful and confusing to end

    Therefore, update the pkg-message accordingly, and install a sample
    config file which should duplicated the functionality of the base
