Hi Team,

I upgraded to 2.4.2-RELEASE-p1 (amd64)  a few days back, and ran into the problems described here:

https://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/7500

I applied the fix described [ pkg-static update f ; pkg-static upgrade f ] and all seemed fine.

Then I noticed that I wasn't getting any logs ... reason being, syslogd was failing to start with the limit error mentioned above.

Does anyone have any suggestions please?

Thanks

Chip.

Guys,

Solved this for myself.

Even though dashboard said I was up to date, I wasn't.

Running console update [option 13] did a kernel update and two reboots.

After that, I was back in business.

Hope that helps someone ...
