Description Lennart Poettering 2011-08-30 18:53:26 UTC
syslog-ng.service currently contains the line "Sockets=syslog-ng.socket" however no such unit "syslog-ng.socket" exists. This should be changed to refer to "syslog.socket", i.e. which is the socket unit for /dev/log which is shared between all syslog implementations and which allows ad-hoc replacing the syslog implementation whithout having to close/remove/recreate the /dev/log socket.

(For more information on all of this, see http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd)

Re-opening as the Sockets option change breaks some systems. Several problems reported in #742624 .
