I'm running Fedora (F19) and my /var/log/messages is filled with info coming from avahi-daemon: stuff like:
Jan 21 14:13:42 localhost avahi-daemon: Invalid response packet from host 10.10.22.3.
from my local network
since I read somewhere that it's harmless, but I don't have time at the moment to debug it, I thought about disabling the reporting by modifying /etc/rsyslog.conf.
I modified this line:
to this line
but with the new line rsyslog doesn't work anymore!
systemctl restart rsyslog reports it as running, but nothing gets ever written in messages - doing stuff that normally gets reported, as stopping & restarting some process (e.g. systemctl restart cups), nothing gets reported.
If I restore the rsyslog.conf line as before, the restart of cups gets reported.
Is there some problem in the way I modified that line?
