Hi all, how would I go about logging to syslog (systemd-journald) but for my own user? For example, a simple python program logs as follows:import syslog
syslog.syslog('hello, syslog')But when I run journalctl -xn as a normal user, I don't see the log message. I only see it when I run journalctl -xn as root.
It runs for some time after /etc/init.d/syslog start and after some time, it stops the logging of messages..also ps -eaf | grep sys not showing the syslog processes..........
When i start syslog using /etc/init.d/syslog start, /var/adm/messages reports messages as follows:
krtld: [ID 472681 kern.notice] WARNING: mod_load: cannot load modul
Hi,I have a problem with journalctl and syslog output within a C program:When I use journalctl in follow mode: $ journalctl -fand I run the folowing program in another terminal#include <stdio.h>

sudo is an essential tool in an environment where there are multiple server and system administrators. By default sudo will log to syslog, and it is very straight-forward to isolate the logging to a local file which can be useful.
