Subject: [gentoo-user] syslog-ng logging problem
Date: Fri, 13 Jun 2008 23:26:54

I'm unable to get the logging up and running as it should.
I've tried syslog-ng, which seems to be pretty much what I need, but it 
keeps spamming my logs with a weird error message I can't seem to figure 

It fills the logs with

"syslog-ng[9533]: Error opening file for writing; filename='/dev/tty12', 
error='Permission denied (13)'"

and never stops. It pushes the CPU usage up to almost 100% as well.

What's going on?

Best wishes
