Thanks J65nko,

This is the output of syslog-ng -s -v:

# syslog-ng -s
syntax error in /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf at line 42.

I did create the directory (mkdir) during the process in /var/log/bcm. It's just a thought, should I have assigned special permissions? I tried to list the perms using:

 ls -l ~/var/log/bcm
It produces:

ls: /bcm No such file or directory
pwd shows:

Xorg.0.log        bcm               daily.out.old     lpd-errs          messages          secure            wtmp
Xorg.0.log.old    console.log       failedlogin       maillog           messages.0.gz     security.out      xdm.log
authlog           daemon            ftpd              maillog.0.gz      pflog             security.out.old  xferlog
authlog.0.gz      daily.out         lastlog           maillog.1.gz      rdist   
Again thanks for your help.
Speak softly and carry BSD!
