"Out of the box" Slackware 3.1 (Sep 96) kernel 2.0.0 installation,
(upgraded with XF86 3.2 for MGA)
syslogd ver 1.3: when started from rc.S, waits about ten seconds; creates
process for a few seconds (as seen from top), then quits and dumps core.
When started manually in debug mode (command syslogd -d),
gives immediately "Segmentation fault. Core dumped."
Size of syslogd is **500, when installation CD lists **776.
Installed binary from syslogd.tgz anew, same size (**500), same result.
Compiled it from source, same size (**500), same result.
Everything else (of what I have tested) seems to work OK (Netscape 3.0,
JDK102, NCSA httpd 1.5.2a, ...)
klogd seems to work, when started manually with given target file.
Anybody seen this before ?
