Fedora Updated sysklogd packages.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-033
2005-01-19
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : sysklogd
Version     : 1.4.1                      
Release     : 26_FC3                  
Summary     : System logging and kernel message trapping daemons.
Description :
The sysklogd package contains two system utilities (syslogd and klogd)
which provide support for system logging.  Syslogd and klogd run as
daemons (background processes) and log system messages to different
places, like sendmail logs, security logs, error logs, etc.
