Var/log/messages file are empty
 
I checked all files in var/log and in particular I found these files are 0
bytes.

How is it possible??

Tnx

Antonio

Are you running F15?

Try systemctl restart syslog.target . There was a bug in F15 that
caused this. I can't remember the fix, though. You might try
systemctl enable syslog.service .

"rsyslog.service" NOT "syslog.service"
