Syslog issue

    I folks!

    I am currently experiencing a syslog issue since I upgrade to Ubuntu 10.10. Syslog process is using 100% CPU.
    I found this thread dealing with the issue, it seems to relate to an update of the kernel API syslog is using:

    Is there any plans to update the colinux kernel to a recent version?
    Best regards,

    I can't answer your question about a kernel update, but a quick work-around for the problem is to comment out the "$ModLoad imklog" line in /etc/rsyslog.conf.  This will stop rsyslog from attempting to read the proc filesystem.

    I reported the same problem back in December on the colinux-users mailing list.

    Ok thanks for the workaround.

    Best regards,
