Description giulioo 2000-12-09 19:24:03 UTC
Since my LANG settings are it_IT some applications log in Italian, and 
some in US  (December: Dec -> dic)
Dec  6 11:14:46 localhost xinetd[770]: options compiled in.
Dec  6 11:14:46 localhost xinetd[770]: Started working: 2 available 
dic  6 11:14:50 localhost xinetd: xinetd startup succeeded
dic  6 11:14:50 localhost lpd: lpd shutdown succeeded

Logview gets confused: the rows with Italian months are displayed without 
date and time and their content is "dic" (the unrecognized month)

Instead of 
11:14:50 lpd lpd shutdown succeeded
I just see
             dic   (empty time, empty daemon name)

This should be solved either in logview or by having syslogd logging 
always in English.

Logview should be fixed.

gnome-admin (and therefore logview) is no longer in the distribution.
