    I have been having syslogd problems ever since i installed Leopard:mad:, it seems to happen whenever the computer wants to log what i have done for Time Machine, even though i dont even use Time Machine. It gets into a constant loop that wont stop unless i manually stop it. I was hoping that this problem would be fixed in 10.5.2:(


    Anyone else still having this problem?

    *Hey guys i cant seem to a picture off my computer to put on this post, could someone detail how to do this?*

    Thanks for for the link but i already saw that article before and its solutions only temporarily solve the problem for a short time. And for the record when i posted this form i wasn't using time machine but since then i have a time machine backup drive and im running 10.5.3 and it still happens occasionally. Im going install 10.5.4 soon and see if it happens anymore.

    But thanks for the help!

    Using Lingon edit daemon and change the launching of syslogd to:

    /usr/sbin/syslogd -ttl 3600 -sweep 3600

    ttl is the time to live of log messages, sweep is how often messages are cleaned.

    Change the times in seconds to other values if you want to. I don't want to keep tons of messages that I will never read for a very long time (If I experience any problem I look at the log right away, so I clean the messages every hour)

    Hope this helps,

    Hello, I've got a different syslogd problem - not the endless loop one that the OP mentioned, but rather a constant crashing problem.

    I keep getting messages in system.log that look something like this:
    (date and time stripped) launchd(1): syslogd exited abnormally (bus error)
    This happens every time I try to do a log database query in
