  1. I can't find /var/log/auth.log Help me please

    Hi. I have been using Suse Linux 9.1 for a while on this machine and
    only recently noticed (checking logs) that the file auth.log was not
    present in /var/log, or any other location.

    Is this normal? Has anybody had the same problem? Can be fixed?

    Thanks in advance

    Milan

    Have a look in /etc/syslog.conf for a line like:

    auth.* /var/log/auth

    If there's no reference to the auth log it, add the above line and
    restart the syslog.
