ulogd fails to start
Hi,

I emerged ulogd-2.0.0_beta4 and using the ulogd.conf that was
installed by portage, it fails to start. I get this message in the
log:

Tue Jul 19 15:32:08 2011 <8> ulogd.c:1179 not even a single working plugin stack

Does anyone know what that's about? ULOG stuff is enabled in my
kernel, and the plugins are on disk where the config file says. So I
don't know what's wrong...

Thanks,
Paul

It seems that you didn't specify any plugins like mysql, pcap, postgres...

Hi, thanks for the idea. I tried all combinations and, unfortunately,
it fails with exactly the same error whether the USE flags are enabled
or not. I guess I will file a bug report.

Solved it. It was a stupid mistake of mine. :)

In /etc/ulogd.conf all of the "stack" lines were commented out by
default. After I uncommented one, now it works.

As the error line is not in the old Ulog, this is new to version 2.0.0, so
it is good you
found this problem now.
