Changing ownsership of these logs to "syslog" and restarting syslogd was sufficient to fix.
/dev/null && debian-sa1 1 1) Apr 10 li243-206 kernel: Kernel logging (proc) stopped. Given this experience I am not terribly confident that the other log files are owned properly.
I want Syslog to write the error and access logs to # /etc/Configuration file for syslogd. # auth,authpriv.* /var/log/*.*;auth,-/var/log/syslog cron.* /var/log/daemon.* -/var/log/kern.* -/var/log/lpr.* -/var/log/mail.* -/var/log/user.* -/var/log/# # Logging for the mail system.
Ihave checked the DPKG-Logs and ´klog´ and ´sysklogd´ have the ´rc´tag now and not the installed ´ii´tag.
