Subject: Re: syslogd dies on 2.6
This is a well-known problem with 2.6 - I've had a bug report files for
months now. If Sun has a patch they haven't let me know... Anyway, the
problem is an apparent race condition that allows a HUP through when there's
no handler for it. You can easily reproduce the problem by HUPing syslogd
My workaround was to use the the syslogd from 2.5.1. Good luck!
