NanoBSD 7.2 2009-04-20 /var/system.log file empty. No system log displayed
I just switched from a full install to a nanobsd 7.2 on an alix.
Among other things I noticed that system logs/system is empty. I checked the /var/system.log file and it is empty as well.
the dhcp log is ampty as well and so is the file /var/dhcpd.log
It actually looks empty editing system.log or dhcpd.log on the web administrator edit function. If telnet and open files with vi it says binary content and it is full of ^@^@^@^@. If delete file and touch a new file with same name it gets overwritten on next boot by one with binary content as before.
Where is the problem? OS?

same (problem?) on the freebsd 8 releases. Not sure if its normal or an error…

Should be fixed on latest snaps.

This should really be fixed now. There was an issue with some syntax in syslog.conf from an earlier commit.
