Thanks so much for your reply.  I'm afraid
my experience has not been that syslog_ng
and syslog have the same /var/log/messages.
I dunno why you get the same format...

The whole reason for my talking to you is
because Logcheck was having problems when
I switched to syslog_ng.  

Maybe logwatch works differently than
logcheck so both syslog and syslog_ng
formats will work fine with it.

Perhaps you mean they are different formats
but LogWatch is unaffected nevertheless?


Sincerely,

Chris
