Problem description

This update provides two fixes to the syslog-ng package:
  • Bug #278741: Fixed default config file to use the pipe driver in the console destination and /dev/console instead of /dev/tty10 on s390, because the tty10 device may not exists (as on s390) and the file driver creates a regular file then. NB: the update will not remove any existing file /dev/tty10 by itself, it has to be removed manually.
  • Bug #257101: Fixed to log parse errors while reload/SIGHUP.
