So here's an interesting tidbit. Michael Stenner wrote a version of
logger that was syslog-capable. In fact, I think he still has it. I'd be
curious to know how he implemented it.
Josko, could you take a look at:
and see if it is still there?
If not, I'll take another look at your patch and see what can be done.
I think syslogging yum output is a good idea. Care to write an epylog
module (http://linux.duke.edu/epylog/) to go along with it?
Would it be a worthwhile idea to change around the stuff that gets
syslogged so it syslogs more important things and/or a slightly
different layout for easier parsing?
