I've updated the version of inetutils to 1.3.2-29.
Changes in 1.3.2-29:
- "The return of syslogd" release. Beginning with version 1.5.15, Cygwin
started to support syslogging to syslogd.
To install syslogd, run the new syslogd-config script which creates the
necessary files to run syslogd and will ask you if it should install
syslogd as service under the SYSTEM account. This is the preferred way
to install syslogd since it will create all files with enough access
rights for SYSTEM.
PLEASE read /usr/share/doc/Cygwin-inetutils-1.3.2.README and the
syslogd man page as well as the syslog.conf man page before installing
syslogd and, that's most important, before starting to complain on the
Cygwin mailing list.
If syslogd doesn't start, that's either a permission problem on the
files and directories syslogd tries to access (/etc/syslog.conf, /dev,
/var/log), or it's a fault in the /etc/syslog.conf file.
In the former case, note that syslogd is running under the SYSTEM account,
so use setfacl(1) to give enough permissions to SYSTEM. In the latter
case, first check if you used spaces instead of tabs. Replace all spaces
outside comments by tabs.
However, the syslogd-config script usually takes care of the permissions.
Bugfixes in this release:
- Don't permute arguments in rsh.
- Fix weird UTMPX usage in telnetd/sys_term.c.
- When updating inetutils, take care that syslogd.exe, inetd.exe and
subsequent processes don't run anymore. Otherwise the update will
To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to your
system. Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
