Hi Maxim,

Thanks for your reply!

I am already running in priviledged mode. Without it, I couldn't
build packages.

I tried that but I am not enough of a low-level Linux expert to get
much benefit from it.

What I did notice is that syslogd is actually running once it has been
started. It shows up in 'ps', and /var/log/messages keeps accumulating
entries. /var/run/ exists and contains the pid of the running
syslogd process.

All this suggests that perhaps the problem is not with syslogd, but with
shepherd wrongly concluding that syslogd failed.

Looks like I will have to dig a bit more into shepherd :-(
