I have a MacBook Pro running 10.6.7 and for a while now it hasn't been logging anything to the system logs. When I look in the Console's All Messages the only logs I see look like this (and it appears once a day):
3/23/11 8:48:01 AM kernel npvhash=4095
The system.log file is completely empty. I checked the /etc/syslog.conf and everything appears fine:
*.notice;authpriv,remoteauth,ftp,install,internal.none /var/log/system.log kern.* /var/log/kernel.log # Send messages normally sent to the console also to the serial port. # To stop messages from being sent out the serial port, comment out this line. #*.err;kern.*;auth.notice;authpriv,remoteauth.none;mail.crit /dev/tty.serial # The authpriv log file should be restricted access; these # messages shouldn't go to terminals or publically-readable # files. auth.info;authpriv.*;remoteauth.crit /var/log/secure.log lpr.info /var/log/lpr.log mail.* /var/log/mail.log ftp.* /var/log/ftp.log install.* /var/log/install.log install.* @127.0.0.1:32376 local0.* /var/log/appfirewall.log local1.* /var/log/ipfw.log *.emerg * # Send kernel messages to FIFO for Norton Personal Firewall kern.* /var/log/Npfkernel.log.fifo
Has anybody ever seen a system that just stops logging and know how to fix it?
