Hi All,


I just noticed FC20 changed system logging.  That is going to
take some getting use to.  RHEL 7 perhaps?


2.8.1. Syslog removed from default installation
syslog is no longer included in default installations. journald
logging serves most use cases as well as, or better than, syslogd.

Users accustomed to checking /var/log/messages for system logs should instead use journalctl.

journalctl command examples:

newjournalctl                   |  old messages
journalctl                      |  less /var/log/messages
journalctl -f                   |  tail -f /var/log/messages
journalctl --unit named.service |  grep named /var/log/messages
journalctl -b                   |  Shows logs from current boot,
                                |  no simple equivalent.
