Description Enrico Scholz 2000-10-02 20:20:30 UTC
mgetty-1.1.22-1 has a bad logging-behavior because it outputs at
successful operations (loglevel L_MESG) the errno-string. An example
output is

| Sep 27 22:53:14 feldi mgetty[11711]: waiting...: No such file or

The reason lies in mgetty-1.1.22-excl.patch removing the parts of logfile.c
which are handling harmless messages. Now 

| syslog( level == L_FATAL? LOG_ALERT: LOG_ERR, "%s: %m", ws );

will be called also if level is L_MESG only.
