Hm, on all my systems I have a man page for pkg.conf Here is the referenced passage from man 5 pkg.conf OPTIONS The following options can be defined in pkg.conf: ... SYSLOG: boolean This option is enabled by default, log all the installation/deinstallation/upgrade oper- ation via syslog(3) What I agree is having it would be nice to have dedicated syslog (like yum.log) instead /var/log/messages since this is already spammed by most every process. -- olli _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
