Description Gary Marshall 2000-07-28 11:35:41 EDT
An application (shtml.exe from frontpage
logs syslog messages properly under RH 6.0
but not under 6.1 or 6.2.

All 3 systems report:

The 6.1 system also has:

There also seems to be other compatibility
issues with this app. But we remain clueless
without logging.

It's using the wrong socket type in libc5. Go to:


grab the libc5 binaries there, and put them in /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib
(or whatever the directory is called; it's something close to that.)
Comment 2 Gary Marshall 2000-07-31 10:17:00 EDT
1) Links at http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/rh42-errata-
general.html#syslogd are old

2) Forcing an install of libc-5.3.12-18.5.i386.rpm has no effect
   (these install in /lib not /usr/i486-linux-libc5/lib; havent
    tried building from sources yet)

3) Installing sysklogd-1.3.31-0.5.i386.rpm gets us logging again
   (guess we will live under the shadow of syslog DOS attacks)
