Hi
After following the manual while instaling, i got syslog-ng as logger just because it whas used in doc.
I wanted to change to metalog. So i simply emerged metalog, rc-updated it and rc-del syslog-ng.
when i do (emerge --show), syslog-ng shows up as [not installed]. And in rc-update, metalog is shown as default and syslog-ng has no runlevel at all. So far so good... BUT....
When i start mu box up i get two lines whith yellow stars.
The first one say (* Service 'syslog-ng' already provide 'logger')
second say (* Not adding service 'metalog')

but still after entering runlevel 3. it say (* Starting meatalog...) :?

How can syslog-ng get the upper hand on metalog when it's not installed 8O

Please help me kill the little bugger...
//Anders

Remove the init script for syslog-ng from /etc/init.d

Try an emerge sync, then try to unmerge syslog-ng.
