systemd-logger: Failed to connect log socket to /dev/log: No such file or directory
init: systemd-logger.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=3
init: Unit systemd-logger.service entered maintenance state.
I wonder if it's a systemd issue or a system misconfiguration.
I'm running latest F14 packages.
$ rpm -qa | grep systemd
Could you get me a longer dmesg excerpt around this?

Hmm, could you redo this and boot with systemd.log_level=debug systemd.log_target=kmsg?
Which syslog implementation are you using? Default rsyslog?
Let me check what happens when I reboot with those arguments...

debug dmesg output
Ah, syslog-ng, hmm. Note that systemd currently cannot really log to syslog-ng anyway, since syslog-ng finds it funny to use a SOCK_STREAM instead of a SOCK_DGRAM socket, which I think is kinda borked.
That said, could you please paste the LSB header of the syslog-ng init script? Most likely it isn't including "Provides: $syslog" in the LSB header which has the effect that systemd doesn't synchronize on it properly.
Actually, $syslog is provided:
(you can fetch whole init script from Fedora dist git if needed)
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides: $syslog
# Required-Start: $local_fs
# Required-Stop: $local_fs
# Short-Description: Next-generation syslog server
# Description: syslog-ng, as the name shows, is a syslogd replacement, but
# with new functionality for the new generation. The original syslogd
# allows messages only to be sorted based on priority/facility pairs;
# syslog-ng adds the possibility to filter based on message contents
# using regular expressions. The new configuration scheme is intuitive
# and powerful. Forwarding logs over TCP and remembering all forwarding
# hops makes it ideal for firewalled environments.
### END INIT INFO
I believe this has been addressed upstream:
This is now fixed upstream in git. Upload follows shortly.
