I finally just unmerged syslog-ng and reemerged it, but it still had the
same error. It also failed on both with both /dev/tty12 and /dev/console.
syslog-ng -s /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf;echo $?
returns 0 :-(
I ran lsusb -vv and I have attached the output (minus flashdrive serial
number)
Luckily, cat /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug is correct.
Are there any other good loggers? I am currently emerging metalog...
thanks for all the help,
nick
