• Bbs not logging to syslog

    From Khronos@VERT/CWSHACK to All on Fri Apr 7 06:02:41 2023
    Hi,
    I am getting along nicely with my system setup. One thing that is troubling me is that I don't seem to be getting any logs for the bbs in the syslog.
    I have the syslog level set to 3 and have it logging to the syslog /var/log/sbbs.log file.
    For the time being I am running the bbs manually with sudo /sbbs/exec/sbbs.
    If I want to see any log messages I have to run it in console mode instead of using the daemon option.
    Using Ubuntu Linux for this install.

    What is the best way for me to figure out where I am going wrong here?

    Thanks,

    syslog level 3 is "critical", meaning you will only be logging messages of a critical severity or worse (higher in severity). That won't be very many messages logged, if any at all. A normal syslog level would be 6 (INFO) or 7 (DEBUG).

    For the time being I am running the bbs manually with sudo /sbbs/exec/sbbs. If I want to see any log messages I have to run it in console mode instead of using the daemon option.

    It's best to run sbbs on Ubuntu Linux using systemd, not "manually with sudo". See the install/systemd/sbbs.service file for instructions.

    Once running sbbs in that manner, you'd use 'journalctl -u sbbs' to read/search the log output. To see the log output in real time, you'd use 'journalctl -f -u sbbs'.
