MCS guy working at a company that sells 'group coupons'. I work mostly with Ruby on Rails and MySQL, but am trying to learn D. I love, love, love Ruby. I think D has a lot of potential, and would make some serious waves if the culture and design/workflow paradigms could make their way over from Ruby.

I notice you are opening log atm. Can you try writing to one of the other logs? If you can then it is not your C program but the system configs that keeps you from writing to your custom log.

OK. That seems to be the case on my system as well. /etc/rsyslog.conf is the conf file for that. This explains why sudo /etc/init.d/syslog restart did not work. It's rsyslog and not plain old syslog. man rsyslog and man /etc/rsyslog.conf will help you out. It says: " For more information see /usr/share/doc/rsyslog‐doc/html/rsys‐log_conf.html # # Default logging rules can be found in /etc/rsyslog.d/50‐default.conf

are you using syslog-ng ? I am running Precise. "sudo apt-cache search syslog" returns syslog-ng but not syslog. You may have to install that first.
