|Can someone tell me where in the startup sequence 'syslogd' is being started. I have been through everwhere I can think of like inittab, RC5, RCS, knoppix_autoconfig files, but I can't find what is calling syslogd daemon. I do not have the syslogd boot command option.|
Also, as far as I can tell, if you default to runlevel 5 (ie. X gui) the actual call to 'startx' comes from ~/.bash_profile. However its not backgrounded, so you can't use the F1 console. If you change the line in .bash_profile to 'startx &' you can then CTRL-ALT-F1 to a usable console at the same time. Should this be the default? Its sometimes useful to drop to a console quickly to do something.
The daemon is started at boot by init. I don't understand what you're trying to do with syslogd since it only logs system events to /var/log (unless you need to tweak it to log virtual machine/services output). It's a default daemon and doesn't require a boot code.
As far as run levels, most users are more comfortable in X than in console most of the time. Defaults are set for the comfort zone of most users, not for those who already know how to get (back) into console.
